UNITE is an intermediate leadership development program offered to students already engaged in leadership positions within UniSA. UNITE is designed to focus on more in-depth self-awareness and self-management strategies, team-building, consensus building and more.

Students participate in tailor-made workshops and a project designed to help them lead more effectively and confidently in their existing roles.

  • USASA Reps
  • USASA and UniSA Sport and Club Organisers
  • Student Ambassadors
  • Student Mentors
  • Academic Student Representatives

The UNITE team will work with each student leadership group to develop a program of workshops and a group project, depending on their roles, needs and preferences.
