USC to present leadership awards to students

26 Sep 2017

The University of the Sunshine Coast will hold its inaugural Student Leadership Awards ceremony on campus at Sippy Downs tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday 27 September).

This event will recognise and celebrate the efforts of seven graduating students for their long-term commitment and dedication to personal development and community service during their time at USC.

USC Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students) Professor Karen Nelson will host the event, and will invite the award winners to speak about their experiences of balancing study, professional development, and social and cultural involvement in the community.

The celebration will be held from 3.45-5.30pm at the USC Art Gallery.

The award winners will then graduate the following day (Thursday 28 September) at a series of four USC ceremonies at the Matthew Flinders College Performance Centre.
