Office of Engagement

Hands in a group

The Office of Engagement leads and manages UniSC’s community-focused commitment to working with and for our diverse communities to advance the social, economic, and environmental wellbeing of its regions and beyond.

This is achieved by connecting and collaborating with the University’s many stakeholders through three focus areas that enable UniSC to both serve and be informed through its non-exclusive outreach activities:

  1. Service and access
  2. Industry and partners
  3. Research and innovation
Continuing Education

The Office of Engagement is committed to partnering with the community through continuing education opportunities across a broad range of topics. We offer short course options to advance your knowledge and skills. For more information contact the Office of Engagement.
