The annual Charles Sturt University student leadership conference is under way at the university’s Orange campus.
More than 60 CSU student leaders drawn from across the university’s campus and online cohorts are in Orange for three days of challenging and inspirational activities to develop leadership skills and network with peers.
The theme for this year's conference, ‘Your Voice at CSU’, is about learning how to give the student voice impact.
Providing inspiration will be guest speakers Tanya Hennessy and Penny Locaso.
MAP: Where is the conference taking place ...
Ms Hennessy is an author, comedian, radio host and social media influencer with a worldwide following. She is also a CSU graduate and recently launched her book, ‘Am I doing this right?’
She will join a question-and-answer session with student leaders to consider how having a voice can challenge and inspire people.
Penny Locaso is the founder and CEO of BKindred, and one of the Sydney Morning Herald’s 2018 influential Australian female entrepreneurs.
Ms Locaso is on a mission to teach 10 million people how to future-proof happiness by 2025, and will speak about how to transform lives and organisations by humanising the future.
Student leaders will look to the future, discussing ideas for change and to influence the strategic direction of the university.
They will participate in a think tank, pitching innovations that could shape the future of CSU to a panel of ‘sharks’.
There’ll be plenty of fun too, including a ‘remarkable race’ to find clues, perform physical and mental challenges and see what’s so great about CSU Orange campus.
The courses offered at the north Orange site in 2018 include bachelors of clinical science, dental science, pharmacy, physiotherapy and sustainable agriculture.
Last year, a total of 13,605 offers were made for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees on campus and online across CSU’s campuses – a 26 per cent increase compared with the same time the previous year.
