Please note only BEL post grad students or undergrads who have completed 16 credit points are eligible to participate in CEP. Eligible students will be invited to apply via email.
The Community Engagement Program (CEP) connects Business, Economics and Law (BEL) students with non-profit and community organisations, offering the opportunity to lend your knowledge and ideas to real business activities and initiatives. You are able to engage in an active learning environment as a member of a project team, taking on a role similar to that of a consultant and working with stakeholders of the organisation to create tailored solutions in response to a project brief.
The program, now in its fourth year, is highly structured and offers professional, academic and industry support along with preparation workshops, and is guided by set project management milestones. As a student within the BEL Faculty at The University of Queensland you have the opportunity to apply for a position on a project team at the beginning of each semester.
The program challenges you to develop business planning and strategy skills, industry knowledge, leadership capability and networking skills. It’s an opportunity for you to expand your networks, gain employability skills and give back to non-profit organisations through the value of their input and ideas.
Note: This event has multiple sessions due to venue capacity and staff resources. Students will only have to attend one of the sessions.
