Engaging Futures

The next gen and implications for the higher education engagement agenda

Save the Dates: 3rd March 2017
Location: Universities Australia Conference | National Convention Centre, Canberra

On Friday 3 March 2017, the peak body for engagement in higher education – Engagement Australia – will once again convene the annual forum for all senior staff carrying leadership responsibilities for engagement and partnerships with business, industry and community.

In 2017, the Engagement Leaders forum will focus on the next generations of students and consider the implications for how universities engage with communities for mutual benefit, and importantly for student success.

This year our guest speaker is Dr Jan Owen AM, Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation for Young Australians. Dr Owen will be joined by a panel of students spanning multiple generational cohorts to spark a timely discussion on the critical role that engagement plays in the future world of work.

Engaging Futures will consider the motivators and drivers for engagement with students, industry and communities in order to equip the next generation of young people to rethink the world, make change and create a better future.
