Community & Engagement

We know education has the power to change the world for both teachers and learners. Its impact on communities is equally as powerful. The Faculty of Education is dedicated to engaging with diverse communities at home and abroad to encourage learners to change their future and build a better, more inclusive future for all.


Our institutional and community partners are integral to the work we do, both in classrooms and in the world where we live. We help learners expand their knowledge, their experience and their world view, so they are ready for tomorrow. We also undertake leading-edge research that advances teaching practices and is responsive to the needs of the community and the evolving world around us.
