At SUSS, Community Engagement is conceived as an integral part of the University’s learning ecology and as a process to empower students to further develop and act on their sense of social responsibility, grounded in real-world ideas and practices to contribute meaningfully to society.
Students can learn and develop themselves through active participation in thoughtfully-organised service experiences that meet actual community needs, co-ordinated in collaboration between university and community. This creates meaningful connections that facilitate cross-sector collaboration and shared resources that help enhance society’s well-being, guiding students in their journey of growth to become leaders in society.
Community Engagement is a graduating requirement of SUSS full-time degree programmes. Students are expected to research, discuss and propose a Community Engagement collaboration in consultation with community partners.
