The Centre for Social Impact's purpose is to catalyse positive change, to help enable others to achieve social impact.
We work together as a collaboration of four universities: Swinburne University of Technology, Flinders University, University of New South Wales and The University of Western Australia.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we live and work. We pay our respects to Elders both past and present, and recognise and respect their abiding connection to this land, its waterways and community. First Nations Peoples have nurtured this land since the beginning and continue to do so today. Sovereignty was never ceded.
What is social impact?
Social impact can be defined as the net effect of an activity on a community and the well-being of individuals and families.
At the Centre for Social Impact, we take a systems approach to improving social impact through government, business and social purpose sectors. Our aim is to create positive, meaningful and sustainable systems change for the benefit of our community and particularly for those at disadvantage as a result of complex, long-term systemic issues.
