Be Engaged

From community ties to global partnerships, CQUniversity staff are empowered to build mutually beneficial connections that drive real change and improves the lives of others.

CQUniversity is the most engaged and connected university in Australia. We empower staff, community, business and industry to interact and build partnerships that support the development of sustainable communities. This means our staff benefit from staying at the forefront of innovations in the tertiary education sector while also giving back to the community.

Our approach to community engagement has helped us achieve the highest share of students from first-in-family, Indigenous, low socio-economic, mature-age or disadvantaged backgrounds than any other Australian university.

CQUniversity changes the world for the better and through social innovation, our students, staff, academics, and communities are all driving the transformation. Enjoy the support of 7.25 hours of Engaged Service Leave per year to help give back to your community.

We are Australia's first and only Changemaker Campus recognised by global social innovation group Ashoka U. Being part of the CQUniversity community gives you the opportunity to help change lives in all kinds of amazing ways. You’ll be part of an organisation that partners with thousands of individuals, organisations and businesses nationally and internationally to create and exchange knowledge, deliver services and find solutions.
