An SSCC meets twice a semester to discuss various opportunities to enhance program-related issues, such as:
- highlighting examples of good practice
- monitoring the delivery of the program against the program plan
- monitoring the delivery of courses against course guides
- monitoring the total student workload
- monitoring the general satisfaction of students with the program
- considering suggestions for modification and improvement to the program
- considering and seeking to resolve problems that are of concern to students undertaking the program
- making recommendations to appropriate managers on matters requiring action that the committee cannot resolve directly.
It is important to note that SSCCs work with issues and recommendations. They do not deal with official complaints or grievances about academic programs, staff or students. RMIT has a separate process for official complaints. Access the complaints process here.
