Our commitment to Be Good
Be Good in action
Torrens University is focused on making an impact locally and globally in everything we do from the way that we support our staff to the way we educate our students and our insistence on setting a high bar for social entrepreneurship.
Social Enterprise World Forum 2022
Torrens University Australia wants to be the most connected university on the planet. We have partnered with SEWF in 2022 because our compassionate response has always been to lead by example with our staff and our students, and to live and die by our values. We believe that together we can create a more sustainable world where purpose, passion, and profit sync together for the greater good.
Torrens University Australia CEO and President, Linda Brown, believes the concept of social entrepreneurship is in our DNA at Torrens University. As a featured keynote speaker at SEWF she will share her thoughts on why every university has a responsibility to create changemakers.
Social Enterprise Hub
Torrens University’s Social Enterprise Hub provides business solutions to our partners in industry, businesses and not-for-profits by engaging our students in special placements and projects.
Our students apply their specialist skills and expertise in strategic projects, product launches, marketing campaigns, evaluating programs, executing events and more.
The Hub thrives on our partnerships and our commitment to Be Good by contributing to society, economy, education, research and industry. Importantly, it delivers on our promise to ensure our students are prepared for their careers and contributions to society.

We will have a conversation about your needs and look at how we can work with you to contribute to your enterprise's growth, sustainability, and social impact.
