Here for Good is the spirit of Laureate International Universities. As the largest global network of higher education institutions, of which Torrens University Australia is a member, we’re united by a belief in the power of education to change lives. In addition, we’re serious about making an enduring commitment to the communities we serve. To us, this is about purpose and permanence. This is what we mean by Here for Good.
We believe society is best served when our students, faculty, and our entire organisation use our collective skills and experience to create positive and lasting change. Our students and graduates are improving lives and making our world better. Our institutions are providing the critical skills, knowledge and support to help make this happen.
At Torrens University Australia, contributing to the community through our student’s learning and development is part of what we do. Organisations that we have supported are numerous and include:
- St Vincent De Paul
- St John’s Ambulance
- Kids Festival
- Smith Family
- Sala Bai Hotel School (Cambodia)
- Lotus Silk women’s cooperative (Cambodia)
- Adelaide Mbale Children’s Health Fund (Uganda)
- ‘Be a Brother’ refugee mentoring program
- Talent over Tourettes
- Volunteering massages at aged care and cancer services.
We work in our communities and with our communities. We would love to hear from any social enterprises about working with our students. Our students can undertake a variety of service learning projects including administration, management, innovation and research.
