At USC, we believe people have the power to create change where they are. Our university was founded on the idea that opportunity is everywhere – in regions like the Sunshine Coast, Gympie and Hervey Bay, where our campuses continue to grow and thrive, and in the people who make up our vibrant community.
The USC community includes a global network of almost 20,000 alumni, who are sharing the benefits of their education in more than 5000 locations worldwide. USC alumni stay connected as mentors, guest speakers, advocates and employers, and play a vital role in shaping USC’s vision for the future.
Our community also includes the many supporters, donors and partners who give their time, resources and funds to ensure our students achieve their dreams. Their support helps us foster opportunities for our regions’ highest achievers, and for people who may never have dreamed of going to university in the past.
It also allows us to pursue groundbreaking research. From climate change adaptation to regional healthcare, bioenergy to young driver safety, giving to USC helps us solve problems that directly impact our regions.
