Our students, academics and teaching teams collaborate with a range of stakeholders, including government and non-governmental organisations (NGO's) to develop educational resources that identify solutions that lead towards a more sustainable and better future.
SOCIAL INNOVATION AT CQUNIVERSITY
At CQUniversity, we have embedded social innovation principals across our courses, business practices, and our locations. We work with government, industry, business and community to encourage and empower our students to identify solutions to local, national and global challenges and to drive change.
Our focus on social innovation has lead to a range of opportunities for our students and the development of educational resources and initiatives that lead to a more sustainable future.
