Community Engagement Program

The Community Engagement Program (CEP) provides students studying courses in business, economics and law with the opportunity to work on real life projects in the community sector, engaging in an active learning environment with direct benefits to not-for-profit, social enterprise and charity organisations.

The students gain invaluable experience to help set them apart from other graduates while experiencing the satisfaction of delivering projects that help community organisations achieve their goals.

Benefits for students

Through the CEP program you will connect with like-minded business, economics and law students to devise and apply creative and innovative solutions to challenges faced by not-for-profit organisations.  CEP enables you to make a positive impact and create change in the community while building your personal and professional profile and increasing your potential to stand out to employers.

This program is open to undergraduate BEL students who have completed a minimum of one year full-time study or any student enrolled in a BEL post-graduate course (except those studying for an MBA).

Benefits for organisations

UQ students have much to offer community organisations. Our students appreciate the opportunity to gain experience and apply their knowledge and creativity.  They can offer a fresh perspective on the activities of your organisation and work very hard to make a positive contribution.
