Empowering veterans and their families at ACU

Assisting you, as a veteran, and your family to lead successful and rewarding lives after military service is a mission-aligned priority for ACU. We are supporting the continuing education of current serving and ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Force by offering programs and services to assist you in achieving your educational and vocational ambitions.

We are also working with industry partners and government to undertake programs of research that are focused on improving outcomes for all veterans and their families. Through these activities, ACU has become recognised as the Australian university that is committed to serving those who have served.

Evaluation and Research Services

ACU engages in veteran and family related research partnerships that are customer-focused, innovative, and financially sustainable.

We work with veteran service providers to develop programs that foster social and community belonging among veterans and their families. We are also available to undertake evaluations of veteran related support programs being offered by veteran service providers.

Our research activities focus on addressing gaps in knowledge about the experiences and wellbeing of contemporary veterans and their families and generate rich data on the veteran service provider sector and the wellbeing outcomes for veterans as they transition back into civilian life.
