Week 20: Community Engagement

Monday, 28 July 2014

The University of Western Sydney has always been firmly embedded amongst and within the communities it serves and services. UWS is truly a university of the people catering to a large proportion of 'first in family' university students.

Community outreach and engagement activities include but aren't limited to training courses/classes, exhibitions (both in Australia and overseas), astronomy nights, science fairs, open days, academic exchanges such as hosting visiting scholars, school children hosting radio programs, video festivals, presenting awards at local high schools, and community projects such as water re-use projects.
