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!
“A leadership opportunity in Arts gives you a precursor to the job market and working in multicultural industries”
Master of Communications and Media Studies student Vijay Paul took advantage of many opportunities available to him in the Arts Graduate Leadership Program.
By participating in the program you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Access an exclusive series of leadership and professional development workshops (further details below)
- Apply your leadership skills through peer mentoring of new students commencing their Arts graduate coursework studies, and by participating in faculty engagement activities
- Network with like-minded highly motivated graduate coursework students
As a graduate leader you’ll receive formal recognition and be awarded a certificate by the Dean of Arts at the Faculty’s formal Postgraduate Dinner held in October each year.
Workshops are designed to develop employability skills and the key competencies critical to professional leaders in a global context, while complementing your Master’s studies.
The series runs between February to September and includes sessions on:
- Exploring leadership
- Employment networking skills
- Mentoring training
- Planning for Professional Success (including access to online resources and email support)
- Training in cross-cultural communication
*full workshop series details will be provided in January 2019
Peer mentoring and faculty engagement is a great opportunity to extend your practice in leadership and to build important networks while you are still studying. These ‘active leadership’ roles enable you to practice your organisation, communication, inter-personal and inter-cultural skills which form the basis of the program workshop series.
As a graduate leader you’ll act as a positive role model to peers in their graduate programs who are in their first semester at Monash through a supported peer mentoring program. Each graduate leader will be allocated between one to four mentees (new graduate students) each semester while they are in the program. Training workshops and informal meet-up sessions with your mentees are organised to assist you in this important role during the year.
Additionally, as a graduate leader you’ll have the opportunity to participate in self-selected leadership activities within the university such as speaking with undergraduate students about your study experiences, and volunteering with the faculty marketing or alumni teams at information events or the annual graduation dinner. We understand your time is limited so your assistance may be as small or large as you choose.
To be eligible to apply for the Graduate Leadership Program, you must:
- Have completed at least one semester in an Arts graduate coursework program
- Still have a full year of study to complete in 2019
- Achieved a distinction average of 70% or higher in your graduate coursework study at Monash
Your commitment to the leadership and mentoring training and all components of ‘active leadership’ is assumed on
acceptance of a place in the scheme.
Complete the 2019 Application Form now.
Applications close on Friday 9 November 2018. Places are limited.
2019 Graduate Leaders will be announced between November - December 2018.
