Professional & Community Engagement (PACE)
We work with businesses and community organisations to provide productive and strategic outcomes on real world projects. Through this co-operative effort, our interns will be armed with the knowledge, skills, experiences and confidence to engage in the critical decisions necessary in the 21st Century. They will be prepared to make a difference.
Develop skills in community engagement, enterprise, cultural competence and innovation.
Arts undergraduates can put their skills to the test on real-world problems.
PACE staff are located on
Level 4, Karl Popper Building
