The McCusker Centre for Citizenship at UWA has been established with a generous donation from the McCusker Charitable Foundation. The Centre, the first of its kind in Australia, commenced in October 2015.

Our Vision

To foster caring, connected and socially engaged citizens who actively contribute to the wellbeing of their communities.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to

  • create and foster community-minded thinkers and leaders
  • inspire students and the UWA community, and the broader Western Australian community to become active, life-long contributors to our local, regional and global communities – and in the process, encourage and support others to do likewise
  • promote awareness about challenging social issues in our communities - and the contribution citizens can make in addressing them.

This purpose reflects and supports the University of Western Australia’s legislative commitment to advance the prosperity and welfare of all Western Australians and its desire to be deeply engaged with its communities locally, nationally and globally.
