Victoria University Provost, Professor Wendy Larner, opened the event and the keynote speaker was Pam Bell, Victoria University alumna and CEO of PrefabNZ.  The evening had a strong SLC presence as Eve Bain, BA/LLB with a major in French and a Spanish minor, was one of two student speakers on hand to help congratulate the current cohort of VILP students.

The SLC wishes to honour the achievements of our VILP award-winning students: Lauren Borgas, Jenanne Burnell, Rebekka Evans, Matilda Gaby, Emily Glover, Shaun Lawrence, Thomas Minot and Tori Triegaardt.

The VILP is an extracurricular programme that involves attendance at thought-provoking seminars and speaker events, and completion of experiential activities in the wider community. It creates opportunities for international experiences and develops critical awareness and leadership skills.
