ACU is deeply engaged with community. We are committed to serving the common good and supporting the dignity and well-being of all people. Each year, ACU Engagement and Campus Ministry conduct five national community giving drives, in partnership with external community organisations that assist people experiencing marginalisation or disadvantage.
These drives invite staff and students to donate various goods, as identified by our community partners, to meet the needs of those experiencing disadvantage in our communities. Community giving is more than charity. It allows staff and students to connect to a need within the community, and for many, begins a pathway to further community engagement at ACU and beyond.
