Student Lived Experience Advisory Group

UNSW's Student Lived Advisory Group was established in 2020 to reflect and engage with diverse lived experiences and needs of the student body within university programs and broader decision making.

The Student Lived Experience Advisory Group (LEAG) was established as a solution to accurately identify and remedy the concerns of diverse student perspectives. Students provide consultation in the development and implementation process of the Division of EDI's initiatives at UNSW. 

The LEAG has recruited current UNSW students with lived experience of equity, diversity, and inclusion. The project offers students paid, workplace development opportunities and the ability to build positive relationships with current students, while increasing students’ participation, awareness and understanding of equity, diversity, and inclusion across UNSW.

Students consult on a wide range of campaigns and projects and contribute to policy review, the improvement of processes, communications, events, responses to social movements and brainstorming creative ideas. This process enables students to strengthen their advocacy, public speaking, chairing meetings, leadership skills, whilst broadening their understanding of developing and contributing to an equitable, inclusive and diverse working environment.

The next meeting is scheduled for 13 May.
