Definition of University-Community Engagement

University-Community Engagement is the collaboration between the University and a targeted community (regional, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.

The purposes of this system are to capture, update and enable Western Sydney University to report on its engagement activities with communities of the Greater Western Sydney region, the state and beyond. It allows both university and community members to explore partnership activities through a range of categories and via keyword search, and to extract and print reports. University leaders of each activity are able to add new data, edit or update previously entered data or save and return to their entries. The data covers ACADEMIC PARTNERSHIP activities involving engaged teaching, learning or research and COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTION activities including service to academic profession and societies.

The system is sponsored by the Office of the Pro-Vice Chancellor, Engagement

In order to ensure coordination of our partnership work, if you are planning to contact any partner listed on TICE, we suggest that you discuss this with the University project leader in the first instance. Many thanks for your cooperation.
