The UTS Centre for Local Government (CLG) is the leading university-based Centre in Australia delivering an extensive program of local government research, teaching and specialist consulting services.

Our degree courses are developed after extensive local government consultation and are designed to make maximum benefit of the knowledge gained from the Centre's concurrent research and consultancy activities.

The Centre has a reputation for understanding the needs of local government and local communities across a range of complex strategic, planning and policy issues.

The Centre is actively involved in a wide variety of engagement activities with the local government sector both across Australia and internationally.
