Engagement and Impact

Make a difference globally through engagement and partnerships.

Our 2020 commitment

Universities contribute hugely to social and economic prosperity by engaging broadly with their local and global communities. We will continue to engage through our public facilities and activities, such as the John Curtin Gallery, the John Curtin Prime Ministerial Library and our major public lectures.  We will also strengthen our major collaborative partnerships in order to engage with our communities and to provide rich opportunities for our students and our researchers.

As a knowledge leader, we will take engagement with our government, industry and corporate partners to a new level. Leveraging our city presence will be critical, as will a focus on ensuring that we are seen as a collaborative and accessible partner of choice, both locally and internationally.

More broadly, our goal is to ensure that our reputation and profile aligns with our strengths and our achievements. We will use our 50 year anniversary to secure our position globally. At the same time, we are committed to having clear and sustainable strategies in place to deliver benefits to regional Western Australia.

Beyond the anniversary, it is important that we build our capacity to engage with our alumni in ways that will engender their ongoing loyalty and support.
