The University of Newcastle has a proud tradition of working together with its community including our local and regional schools. Community based programs and research emerge from our core business of teaching and learning. At the same time these connections keep our efforts focused and purposeful while helping to foster a sense of identity that comes from being part of this unique community.
We believe we are stronger when we work together; therefore the development of mutually beneficial partnerships helping to build strong regional communities is an essential goal of the University's community engagement mission.
With our students and staff as our greatest assets, the University seeks to understand community issues and work with our partners to foster social cohesion and find innovative solutions through education. We aim to establish, build and maintain strong partnerships between the University and our primary and secondary schools across the Hunter and Central Coast, while developing and supporting opportunities for our schools to participate in educational experiences.
