Arts Graduate Leadership Program

Arts Graduate Leadership Program

Are you are a high-achieving Arts graduate coursework student eager to develop career building leadership and self-management skills in a supportive environment?

Are you interested in making a positive difference to newly commencing graduate coursework students by becoming a peer mentor and contributing to faculty activities?

Then the Arts Graduate Leadership Program is for you!

What is the Graduate Leadership Program?

The program comprises a workshop series from February to October in areas critical to your development as a professional leader. The program workshop series is designed to build core competencies critical to professional leaders in international contexts. Each workshop session is delivered by experienced trained facilitators. These skills are then applied through your active learning in the faculty’s peer mentoring scheme and in other faculty engagement opportunities.

As a graduate leader you will be thanked and awarded a certificate of appreciation by the Dean of Arts at the formal postgraduate dinner held in October each year.

You can also practice your newly-honed leadership skills through the Arts Graduate Peer Mentoring Scheme and other engagement activities conducted by the Faculty.

Arts Graduate Peer Mentoring Scheme

Practice your organisation, communication, inter-personal and inter-cultural skills as a positive role model to graduate program peers who are in their first semester at Monash. Training workshops and informal meeting-up sessions with your mentees are organised to assist you in this important role during the year.

As graduate leaders you will have opportunity to participate in self-selected leadership activities within the university., such as assisting faculty staff at graduate expos, on faculty marketing or the faculty alumni strategy. We understand your time is limited so your assistance may be as small or as large as you choose.
