What we do

We are dedicated to the advancement of social justice causes.

Beyond our formal commitments as a tertiary education provider, we understand our responsibility extends to the local communities surrounding us as well as the general public. We believe it is our obligation to share expertise for good and collaborate on initiatives that build trust, understanding and new skills for all participants.

We undertake our work in a spirit of reciprocity. Valuing the knowledge, experiences and contributions of our partners, these initiatives not only allow our students and academics to give back but to work with and learn from the community.

We strongly believe in community-based social change – projects that prioritise community issues and empower the people who live in them – and the potential to create meaningful, long-term connections off campus.

Our programs


In Service learning in indigenous communities unit, our undergraduate students work on an interdisciplinary project in one of the University's Indigenous Service Learning Hubs. Students will work on real-world projects that have been prioritised and identified by Indigenous communities, applying their disciplinary expertise and gaining valuable experience in working across disciplinary boundaries.

Community events

We have partnered with cultural events in recent years over the years including the Bloomsday celebration with the Consulate General of Ireland, Sydney Writers’ Festival, Sydney Film Festival and Sydney Contemporary Art Fair.
