Action set 5: Engagement with society beyond the classroom and campus
UniSA will build on its strong social mission and commitment to the communities it serves, adding value to the economic and social environment of our society. We will:
Develop a Social Entrepreneurship Hub
We will create a new inter-disciplinary 'hub' for social innovation that will connect staff and students with the community. Hub activities will be supported by an expansion of entrepreneurship training and the creation of a new entrepreneurship fund.
We will establish university-wide volunteering programs for staff and students.
Take action on disabilities
We will implement the recommendations of the 2012 Disability Action Plan Review and provide a program of workshops and staff development on Universal Design for Learning principles and pedagogies.
We will also appoint a Director: Equity Services, cross-cutting staff and student needs.
Provide more education outside the city
Building on and evolving our Centre for Regional Engagement model, we will deliver three new regional learning hubs across South Australia.
Mentor for success
We will advance a university-wide strategy for mentoring which encompasses existing and new activities.
Create more community clinics
We will establish inter-professional community clinics for students, staff and the community which will provide real-life examples of the UniSA teaching/practice/research nexus.
Become the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander University of Choice
We will strengthen our position as the University of Choice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in South Australia and beyond. We will develop the pipeline from high school through to postgraduate engagement, identifying and supporting the best and brightest young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
