Schools & Community Outreach Program
The School and Community Outreach Program is part of Southern Cross University's commitment to improving access, participation in higher education, with a particular focus on rural, regional and remote students from low socio-economic backgrounds.
The program works with primary and secondary school students, and their communities within and beyond our campus regions and is designed to:
- increase knowledge and understanding of higher education and career options,
- build confidence and motivation towards higher education,
- support teachers, families and community to assist students to reach their potential for higher education.
The program has a unique focus and content for each year, delivered through small interactive groups, workshops and larger group presentations with opportunities to meet and interact with university student mentors who provide a personal perspective on university by sharing their insights and experiences.
