We welcome all students across Victoria University and VU Polytechnic to join our Student Leadership Council. We value diversity of student leaders and believe in opportunity for all.

If you don't think you are a leader, you might be wrong! Leadership is more than a title. Leadership is about the ability to influence others and work towards a common goal.

Our meetings empower student leaders to express their opinions about various VU initiatives to help make positive change.
