The 2022 Student Voice Australia Symposium will bring together staff and students from Australian higher education institutions to examine the positionality and role of students as essential partners in decision-making and governance now and into the future. 

We are thrilled to be joined by three international scholars to keynote this year’s Symposium: Dr Manja Klemenčič (Harvard University), who will speak about student agency, and Lovisa Håkansson and Dr Ulrike Schnaas (Uppsala University), who will explore institutional-wide practices that foster democratic sustainable futures at and beyond the university.   

Dr Sharlene Leroy-Dyer (University Queensland) will facilitate a discussion with passionate students about the importance of student engagement around equity, diversity and inclusion on Day 1, and Day 2 will showcase stories from the field in our presenter streams.

Across the two days, we are also offering two SVA member exclusive workshops: the first with Dr Mollie Dollinger (Deakin) and Dr Aidan Cornelius-Bell (UniSA), and the second with Simon Varwell and Stef Black from sparqs. Places are limited so click here for further details and registration.
