Celebrating diversity and promoting equity and inclusion in our campus communities
We respect the dignity of all students and champion equity, diversity and inclusion. We seek to remove barriers and improve access to university for people who may have experienced personal or financial hardship, or educational disadvantage. Our targeted programs assist with transition into university life and success in the learning community and include peer mentoring, workshops and other resources.
Transition and support services
We help a wide range of Griffith students who may need additional support to settle in and succeed at university. Our programs and services assist with the transition into university life and promote an inclusive learning environment. At Griffith, everyone belongs.
Outreach and partnerships
We work with a variety of stakeholders, including local schools, TAFEs and community groups, to create educational partnerships that raise awareness and aspirations for higher education. Our customised outreach activities help develop capacity for university study and are designed and delivered with relevant and successful Griffith role models and mentors.
Our Uni-Reach program encourages the higher education ambitions of students at partner high schools in areas with limited transition into university study.
Career Outreach Program
The Careers Outreach Program was developed to raise tertiary awareness and broaden the career aspirations of students and is integral to Griffith’s commitment to widening tertiary participation in under-represented groups, through effective partnerships with schools and local communities.
Maori and Pacific Islander Outreach
Delivered to Uni-Reach high schools with a large population of Pasifika students, our LEAD program helps demystify university, increase confidence and encourage teamwork.
We hold outreach activities with partnering TAFEs, community colleges, VET providers and community service organisations to raise higher-education aspirations of adult learners. We also help adult learners navigate pathways to university and transition smoothly into tertiary study.
Parents and families
Parents, partners, caregivers and adult mentors have a powerful role in encouraging and supporting their loved ones to aspire and succeed at university.
We collaborate with a number of organisations to forge partnerships, programs and scholarships that benefit students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Below are some examples of such partnerships.
