Uni-Reach drama is a key strategy within Griffith Student Equity’s Uni-Reach program. The aim of Uni-Reach is to assist students from low socio-economic backgrounds to access and prepare for higher education.
Uni-Reach drama targets year 8 students in a range of socially and economically disadvantaged schools in the greater Brisbane area. Students are presented with a performance piece which addresses some of the key challenges that prevent young people from aspiring to university.
