Students Helping Students Awards 2019

Recognising outstanding SHS contributions to Deakin student success

Because of the community of diverse mentors across Deakin, from my very start of my journey in Australia I have felt fully embraced and included within a supportive and engaging learning environment - Students Helping Students.

Olive Wang, 2018 Students Helping Students Awards Winner.

Students Helping Students (SHS) is Deakin's Centre of Excellence for all SHS programs across the University, and these programs play a crucial role in helping Deakin students to become more successful and engaged in academic, social and practical ways. Even more importantly, it helps both students and staff develop an increased understanding of what learning is all about. After all, learning happens everywhere.

The 2019 SHS Awards will be held at the Waterfront campus on Wednesday, September 25, 2019.
