Programs and initiatives
We are leading a transdisciplinary project, in partnership with the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) to explore the ethical and pragmatic human rights implications of new technology.
Our unique program to address inequality in tertiary education, by engaging and nurturing students who are not on track for university. After an intensive two-year program, U@Uni opens the door to 300 young people each year to study at UTS.
A first for Australian universities, UTS has developed a Social Impact Framework to demonstrate our social impact as a university, and to guide our efforts in future.
Grants of seed funding to tap into the expertise of UTS researchers and practitioners to develop ongoing relationships, build capacity, and generate new opportunities for engaged practice and research.
We place UTS students at the heart of the community sector to gain real world experience and make a meaningful difference to local not-for-profit organisations.
Supporting access, participation and success for students with lived experiences of forced migration and seeking asylum in Australia.
The gold standard for assessment and recognition of community engagement is being piloted in Australia, with UTS and CSU leading the charge.
An international, online refereed journal concerned with the theory, practice and processes of university-community engagement.
Reporting on UTS’s social impact across university-wide teaching, research and practice outcomes.
