Community engagement is an important part of an ACU education. It provides the opportunity to work with others from diverse backgrounds in support of a fairer society. It is also the practical manifestation of the learning in the Core Curriculum, developing our capacities to see the world through the eyes of others.
Higher education shouldn’t be a one-way transfer of knowledge and ideas. It should be a two-way street, allowing you to engage and make meaningful contributions beyond coming to classes and doing assignments.
It’s our mission to develop graduates who in work and in life are committed to pursuing the common good. Who courageously act on their truths as well as speak them. Who demonstrate respect for the dignity of all, and for human diversity.
When you undertake a community engagement placement during your course, you’ll learn to work with others from diverse backgrounds – putting your classroom learning into practice for the benefit of local and global society.
