The University of Newcastle has launched a new online platform designed to forge closer ties with the region’s community, business and industry.

Engage Newcastle is a virtual interface that will help bring together the University’s community and industry engagement. Under the banner ‘Our community, your university’, it offers volunteering, leadership programs and community based learning, as well as a tool for experiential learning in community engagement – all online.

Engage Newcastle is an online place for residents, groups and businesses from the Hunter and beyond our region to meet and exchange stories and to nurture, support and inspire one another.
