Any University Faculty, School or Division offering a volunteering or professional development program are eligible to nominate the activity and its positions for inclusion within UNSW Advantage.
Constituent Clubs (affiliated with a faculty) are also entitled to nominate their executive positions, and any volunteer opportunities or professional development programs. A faculty staff member must be appointed Activity Administrator, to support the nomination, ensure it meets eligibility criteria, maintain contact with the students undertaking the activity, and to be able to verify their hours and involvement. They are required to update student records via the online database (CCOS) several times a year, for which they will be given administrative access.
Any staff member requiring information or guidance concerning the supervision of students within a constituent club or student led activity, should contact UNSW Advantage.
Arc Clubs and Societies
Several executive positions within Arc clubs and societies are eligible for inclusion within UNSW Advantage through Arc’s Executive Recognition Initiative. To be eligible, executive members will be required to attend professional development training run by Arc, and submit a log book detailing their activities. The society will also need to submit a simple form to Arc.
Constituent Clubs who are unable to find a faculty staff member to act as the Activity Administrator may also be eligible to participate in Arc’s Executive Recognition Initiative. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteering and Professional Development
Opportunities to volunteer or undertake professional development within external organisations are not currently eligible for inclusion under UNSW Advantage, unless they are part of a university program such as the Volunteer Army or the UNSW Leadership Program.
Please see the UNSW Advantage eligibility criteria.
Contact Advantage if you would like help in assessing whether you are entitled to lodge a nomination.
