We are here to support, encourage, facilitate, promote and champion community and research engagement at ACU.

Community engagement

ACU Engagement is committed to ensuring that all ACU students and staff have the opportunity to make a contribution to their community that is feasible and meaningful to them, and that meets community needs in a way that is valuable and respectful. We work with our community partners to identify their needs and provide opportunities for staff and students to get involved.

We see community engagement not as a discrete program or entity, but as part of the DNA of the Australian Catholic University – it is in how we teach, how our students learn, what we research, and the ways we interact with the world around us.

Research engagement

ACU Engagement undertakes the collection and reporting of Research Engagement and Impact data; and the development and implementation of policies and strategies to increase Research Engagement and Impact. ACU Engagement also works with Faculties and Institutes to encourage, facilitate and promote Research Engagement and Impact outcomes.
