With a vision to be a world-leading university for our region, the University of Newcastle has a proud tradition of working with our communities and being deeply engaged with our local and regional schools.

We serve and strengthen our regions through research, innovation, education and engagement. We believe we are greater than the sum of our parts, so there is nothing we like more than to partner with others to build strong communities.
