In response to student and graduate feedback, the McCusker Centre for Citizenship Alumni Committee was established in mid-2019.

More than 50 former McCusker Centre for Citizenship interns and program participants registered their interest in joining the Alumni Committee.

Past events

In September 2019, the McCusker Centre for Citizenship Alumni Event Series received a UWA alumni grant to support events.

The Alumni Committee held their inaugural networking event, Catch-Up & Connect, in 2019 with more than 70 students and members of partner organisations in attendance.

In 2020, an Alumni Networking Sundowner was held at St Catherine's College with a panel discussion on "How community leaders stayed active in their communities and adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic". The panel comprised of Briana Lee (People with Disabilities WA), Jimmy Murphy (Town Team Movement) and Lyn Levy (St Patrick’s Community Support Centre).
