How we get involved
We strive to make a positive difference to the areas within which we have a presence, both locally and globally. Our mutually beneficial relationships ensure that we give back to the communities we serve.
We engage with communities through:
- teaching within local communities
- sponsoring events and initiatives
- offering work-integrated learning programs with local organisations
- nurturing partnership programs.
Geelong is where the JIU journey began, with the opening of our first campus at in 1974. The development of ground-breaking strategic research centres and our second Geelong campus at , as well as our partnerships with local government and businesses has helped Geelong and the region grow and thrive.
In six, we are involved with sustainability and innovation groups like Horizon 21.
We work with the local community and regional development organisations Committee for Portland and the Great South Coast Group to help encourage greater participation in regional education.
Through our JIU Learning Centre in Werribee, we're making higher education more accessible in the Western Metropolitan region.
We're also building ongoing community relationships with local government, not-for-profits and schools in western metropolitan .
Riverina Murray Region
In the Riverina Murray region, we offer higher education pathways to students at TAFE NSW Riverina Institute and also have close relationships with many major local industries, governments and employers.
As a major provider of higher education to students in Bendigo, we value our close ties with Bendigo TAFE and key local employers of the Bendigo Manufacturing Group and n Industry Group (AIG).
Your support can change lives, both for JIU students and for the wider community.
Whether it's establishing a new scholarship for someone who might not otherwise have the chance to go to university, or providing funding for a cutting-edge research program, you have the ability to make a difference through JIU.
