Broader context of this event

The University approved a new community engagement strategy in May 2016. Aims of the strategy include:

  • Establishing a community engagement community of practice across the University
  • Developing a holistic overview of the University's community engagement relationships, so that staff, students and external partners can be better supported with funding, training, etc.
