In Hume, VUiC is working in partnership with Hume City Council to increase educational participation and attainment and contribute to community and economic development. The partnership aims to make tertiary education and training opportunities more accessible to Hume residents by responding to the needs of the community and workforce.
This partnership has several different areas of focus, including:
- increased access to jobs, skills and education pathways for local people, particularly young people and migrant communities
- VU's place-based research positively impacting community wellbeing
- a sustainable Hume Multiversity, providing educational access and opportunity in local settings, such as the Hume Global Learning Centres.
