AGILE (Academy of Global Impact and Leadership through Ethics) is an innovative opportunity for high achievers to elevate their performance. At ACU, we know you are already a leader, and we are here to take that to the next level.

Enrol, and you will be offered:

  • immediate membership in AGILE, which will provide you with exclusive networking opportunities
  • masterclass seminars with ACU’s nationally recognised teaching staff and global leaders
  • access to talks from Australia’s most inspiring leaders.

You will graduate ACU not only with a degree, but with the experience, knowledge, and aptitude to be any employer’s first choice, ready to contribute and shape the world’s new tomorrow.

AGILE’s mission

As members of AGILE we see that the commitment of global impact precedes the demand for leadership to fulfill what's wanted and needed in the world. AGILE attracts and selects those who are already leaders with the intention to elevate their leadership, power, productivity and therefore impact and will be developed in quick, flexible, and agile leadership.


About the program

AGILE is exclusive to first year students who have a predicted ATAR of 90+ and students with a GPA of 5.75. AGILE members will have access to a range of personal and career enhancing opportunities including:

Virtual lunch with ACU’s senior executive

This is an opportunity for AGILE members to meet the senior executive of ACU, including the Provost, and hear about their vision for ACU. AGILE members will have the opportunity to ask questions and get advice about their academic and professional trajectory, as well as meet other local AGILE members to establish support networks. The Lunch with Leaders presentation will be virtual; however you will be invited to attend your local campus to meet members in person, listen to the presentation, and then come together for lunch afterwards.

Leadership in Action

Leadership in Action is an opportunity provided to AGILE members enrolled in community engagement units in semester two. You will be mentored by the external organisation We Aspire to elevate your leadership by developing and creating your own project that has an impact on the communities you care about. In 2022, students developed projects such as sports clubs for low socio economic schools, tutoring sessions to address mental health in young people, empowering Muslim women leadership, nappy drives for mothers living in poverty and many more.

GIVE (Global Impact of Value and Excellence) Talks

GIVE Talks are exclusive to AGILE members and ACU staff, and will celebrate excellence in leadership that makes a positive impact on local and global communities. By sharing in the speakers’ journeys you will become empowered to begin shaping and creating change and encouraged to reconsider your predetermined notions of what leadership is. The GIVE Talks will draw on the expertise of ACU, Australian, and global leaders.

Leadership Incubator

The Leadership Incubator is exclusive to AGILE members and it’s an opportunity to take part in paid internships and professional development within ACU and with external organisations. AGILE members will have priority access to apply for these paid internships within research, and external organisations relevant to your degree, which will help you kickstart your career
