The Vice-Chancellor's Medal for Outstanding Contribution to University Life is awarded to students who, during their time at Deakin University, have made an outstanding contribution to the life and work of Deakin University. This may include membership of Council, work within organisations such as the Deakin University Student Association or other clubs and societies, leadership roles in elected positions within the University, fostering a sense of community within Faculties or Schools, or contributing in other ways to the goals and vision of the University's Strategic Plan LIVE the future: Agenda 2020.
Up to four medals are conferred each year, one from each Faculty. These prestigious prizes each consist of $1,000 and a framed medallion and will be presented at one of the annual graduation ceremonies. An appropriate endorsement is also made on each student's academic record.
Each winner will have their name recorded on the Honour Board located in the Richard Searby Room at the Melbourne Burwood Campus.
