Torrens University Australia joined forces with the GWS Giants in February 2020. Since the club's formation, it has helped grow the game in Western Sydney and the ACT through numerous community programs. The Giants’ on-field success has also helped to bring new fans to the game, with the club's membership growing year-on-year.

As part of the collaboration between Torrens University Australia and GWS Giants, both parties are committed to supporting players, staff and members of the AFL club and community to achieve their desired career outcomes, outside of becoming professional athletes.

Torrens University is also working alongside GWS to deliver a series of mental health and wellbeing workshops in high schools to empower students in years 7-8. These workshops explore and unpack the stigma related to mental health and mental illness, discuss the prevalence of mental health problems amongst young people, and provide students with essential skills when helping friends in a crisis.
