Our graduates work for the wellbeing of the community

The School has extensive ties to our local, national and international community and produces graduates that are industry connected. We believe in studying society and social arrangements to assist with the development of human behaviour.

The School is actively involved in research across many disciplines and our alumni network ensures that our students, both past and present, stay connected and up to date.

National Disability Insurance Scheme Symposia Series

In partnership with the Community Resource Unit and Queenslanders with Disability Network, Griffith University has hosted a symposia series to provide updated information, share ideas, knowledge and experience in the lead up to the application of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Queensland.

Each event was an opportunity to hear from and network with people with a disability, families, service providers, government and researchers in the sector.

Remarkable Research

The School of Human Services and Social Work at Griffith is actively involved in research across many disciplines. Current research is cutting edge, relevant and exciting and you can be part of it.

Life-changing Learning & Teaching

Our School creates industry-ready change makers that have hands on experience and learn from experts with strong links to the health sector, government and community.

Our teachings are designed to develop high-level practitioners, with competence in all areas, capable of promoting social justice and equality.
