One of ACU’s core values is ‘service’ to the wider community and the common good. Through study at ACU students are encouraged to contribute back to the community and common good, this can be seen in the core curriculum and placements opportunities. Encouraging and supporting this behaviour aligns closely with the university values.

In line with ACU’s mission, identity and values the ACU Student Veteran Impact Award aims to provide recognition to student veterans who make significant contributions to both the university community and to the wider community.
