We strive to make a positive difference to the areas within which we have a presence, 本地及全球. Our mutually beneficial relationships ensure that we give back to the communities we serve.
We engage with communities through:

- offering work-integrated learning programs with local organisations
- nurturing partnership programs.
吉朗 is where the Deakin journey began, with the opening of our first campus at Waurn Ponds in 1974. The development of ground-breaking strategic research centres and our second 吉朗 campus at Waterfront, as well as our partnerships with local government and businesses has helped 吉朗 and the region grow and thrive.
Deakin continues to create strong ties with the 墨尔本 community, from the city centre to the beautiful south-eastern suburbs surrounding our 墨尔本伯伍德 Campus.
In Warrnambool, we are involved with sustainability and innovation groups like Horizon 21.
We work with the local community and regional development organisations Committee for Portland and the Great South Coast Group to help encourage greater participation in regional education.
Western metropolitan 墨尔本
Through our Deakin Learning Centre in Werribee, we're making higher education more accessible in the Western Metropolitan 墨尔本 region.
We're also building ongoing community relationships with local government, not-for-profits and schools in western metropolitan 墨尔本.
In the Riverina穆雷 region, we offer higher education pathways to students at TAFE NSW Riverina Institute and also have close relationships with many major local industries, 政府与雇主.
As a major provider of higher education to students in 本迪戈, we value our close ties with 本迪戈 TAFE and key local employers of the 本迪戈 Manufacturing Group and Australian Industry Group (AIG).
Your support can change lives, both for Deakin students and for the wider community.
Whether it's establishing a new scholarship for someone who might not otherwise have the chance to go to university, or providing funding for a cutting-edge research program, you have the ability to make a difference through Deakin.
