The University of Wollongong Experience
AbstractResearch shows that Australian students attend classes but often leave the campus without getting involved in co-curricular activities. The University ofWollongong (UoW) shares the challenge of other metropolitan institutions in motivating students to get involved and take engage these opportunities. Guided by a sophisticated culture of institutional planning and feedback systems, the UoW has transformed campus culture to support "the Wollongong Experience" for students. Rated as one of the top-quality Australian universities, UoW uses community service as a core strategy in its approach to student development. Now, the University hopes to embed service learning in the curriculum.
