Partners and accreditation

Partners and accreditation

The Faculty of Arts is committed to expanding the reach and impact of our research and teaching by developing strategic partnerships with business, community, and government both in Australia and internationally.

Engaging with the industry and community

The Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) program offers students the opportunity to contribute their academic learning, enthusiasm, and fresh perspective to the professional workplace by connecting with partner organisations. PACE units provide an academic framework through which students can engage with the community, learn through participation, develop their capabilities, and build on the skills that employers value.
