undertaken in conjunction with the Student Guild to further develop and strengthen the already
substantial range of volunteering and service learning options offered to the University’s
students with a view to eventually achieving the aim of providing all undergraduate students with
service learning experiences.

The External Environment Committee had been giving further consideration to service learning and
volunteering, including how the University interacts with the volunteering sector and how the
service learning requirements of New Courses 2012 might eventually be embedded in the new
courses.

At its meeting on Wednesday 6 July 2011, the Committee considered a proposal to undertake a
project to review progress being made to provide meaningful service learning opportunities for
students and to suggest how the University might further develop a meaningful and sustainable
culture of service learning.

It was resolved (Resolution 11/5) – to recommend to Senate that subject to amendments being
made to the proposal in light of the Committee’s discussions, that it allocate $20,000 to fund the
proposed project.

RESOLVED - 37

(i)     to approve the proposed project; and
