Did you know, UOW traces its origins to a community fund-raising campaign more than half a century ago that provided the foundations for a small technical-based college to grow into the world-class institution it is today. From these small beginnings the University maintains a close connection with the community, providing key social and economic initiatives that benefit the community and reinforce our close ties. Interested to know more about community engagement at UOW.
The UOW Community Engagement Grant Scheme provides a platform for UOW to partner with community organisations on projects that have impact and build capacity, creating connections and futures in the community. Have an idea for a project? Find out more about the Community Engagement Grants Scheme.
