We’re taking a new approach to demonstrating and enhancing the very real ways we make a difference.
UTS has developed a Social Impact Framework to demonstrate our social impact as a university, and to guide our efforts in future.
As public purpose institutions, universities have a critical responsibility to contribute to the community through research, education and practice. At UTS, the concept of social justice is key to our core and purpose – we are committed to driving social change in the world beyond our campus.
This commitment is reflected by a diverse set of institution wide social justice initiatives that have only expanded in scope and depth since UTS was established. Our student-based programs, focused research and innovative teaching practices deliver education and research opportunities to create a more just and equitable world.
In order to formalise our social justice agenda and further articulate and structure our future endeavours in this space, in 2016 we began developing the UTS Social Impact Framework.
