Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Program:
The Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Program (VCLP) is a 3 tiered leadership program available to all University of Tasmania students.
This program provides opportunities for leadership development and formally recognises and celebrates student contributions to a broad range of areas including volunteering, research and industry experience. Participation in the VCLP ensures that when you graduate you will have the skills and experiences necessary to give you a competitive edge.
