VU is working in partnership with Hume City Council to increase educational participation and attainment in Hume, and contribute to community and economic development.
Together, we facilitate lifelong learning by making tertiary education and training opportunities more accessible to Hume residents.
We foresee this partnership comprising several different areas, including:
- increased access to jobs, skills and education pathways for local people, particularly for young people and migrant communities
- VU's place-based research positively impacting community wellbeing
- a sustainable Hume Multiversity, providing educational access and opportunity, such as the Hume Global Learning Centres.
The partnership also provides the Hume Multiversity Tertiary Scholarship.
