Being the change
USC is a fast growing university that is gaining a strong academic reputation for its teaching and research. We are increasingly sharing that knowledge and expertise to improve people's lives wherever we go.
We work together with public and private sector partners around the world who bring their special contributions to capacity building.
So far we've delivered more than 50 diverse projects and received formal recognition and awards in Australia, Indonesia and Cambodia.
Our research shows that our alumni are using their new skills to positively impact their communities, families, schools, universities, hospitals, health centres, tourist areas, small businesses and government departments.
