This groundbreaking conference will galvanise and inspire leaders and practitioners committed to advancing new approaches and opportunities for civic engagement and social responsibility by Australian universities in their surrounding communities, cities and regions. It will enable engagement leaders, managers and practitioners to explore the purpose or ‘re-purposing’ of their institution in the context of global trends that are changing and reshaping the role of the university towards a ‘civic’ institution with crucial connections to its local and regional communities as well as its ‘value constituents.’  The Conference will give leaders and practitioners the opportunity to come together and hear from senior University Engagement Officers including Vice Chancellors, Deputy Vice Chancellors (Engagement), Pro Vice Chancellors (Engagement) and Vice Presidents (Engagement) as well as senior leaders and practitioners about current trends and strategies that have implications for learning, teaching and research in relation to social and civic engagement.

The conference will include the following best practice case studies from around the world as well as leading edge strategies and approaches adopted by Australian universities that provide a way forward for the civic and socially responsible university:

Australian University Cities of the Future – lessons from Griffith University on the Gold Coast, La Trobe University in Melbourne and Flinders in Adelaide.

Town, Gown and Crown - the role of the Civic University in Britain: the making of the City Region in Greater Manchester, UK

Re-building Christchurch: innovative approaches to civic engagement in the face of adversity from The University of Canterbury, New Zealand.

Harnessing the power of Government: a joint Higher Education partnership approach to embedding the University in the local community

Students as Partners: towards a more critically engaged and socially responsible curriculum for Australian universities

Engaging Australia’s First Peoples - a national priority for the Australian Civic University

Early release copies of the new Issue of Transform: the Journal of Engaged Scholarship, titled: The Role of the Civic University in Australia: the making of a City Region will be available for all participants at the conference
