Centre for Arts and Technology believes that students not only have a voice, but should be encouraged to share it. At the Kelowna campus, there is a committee that is comprised of students that meet regularly to discuss student issues and opportunities. Meetings are held at least once a month where members of these committees bring forth ideas from their peers about how to improve the school, events and activities that contribute to student life and industry news. The meetings are attended by a member of Student Services to provide direction or feedback on the items discussed. SLC members take their roles very seriously and know that they are speaking on behalf of the entire student body.
This student leadership role provides a “voice of the student” in bringing forward and articulating concerns, issues and opinions from a student perspective and provide feedback regarding the College’s programs, facilities, support services, campus life, and overall general effectiveness. This dedicated group of students may also take on challenges throughout the year – planning and hosting events, attending networking events in the industry, or proposing changes to the daily routine of Centre students. Their voices are never quiet – and we thank them for it!
