Creating educational partnerships to raise awareness and aspirations for higher education

Student Equity Outreach works with a variety of stakeholders, including local schools, TAFE s and community groups to create customised outreach activities that help develop capacity for university study and are designed and delivered with relevant and successful Griffith role models and mentors.

Services and programs

Uni-Reach

Our Uni-Reach program encourages the higher education ambitions of students at partner high schools in areas with limited transition into university study.

Careers 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.

Careers Outreach Program

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.

Mature students

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.

Mature students

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.

Parents and families

Educational partnerships

We collaborate with a number of organisations to forge partnerships that benefit students from disadvantaged backgrounds. This includes state-based partnerships, local community partnerships and working with low-income students, students from regional and remote backgrounds and students who are in out-of-home care.

Educational partnerships
