Public Partnerships and Impact Hub

What is the UNSW Public Partnerships and Impact Hub?

The UNSW Public Partnerships and Impact Hub is a connection between the contemporary policy needs of Australian public sector leaders and UNSW’s large network of public sector expertise. We are a coordinated point of contact through which UNSW offers its educational expertise, experience in capability building, and recognised credentials to support the contemporary needs of the public sector.

We help the public sector build internal capability and expertise

UNSW knows that today’s policy dilemmas span more than single departments, directorates, sectors, levels of government, and nations. We also know that despite ongoing efforts to tackle these challenges, the readiness and consistency across the public sector remains unclear. As a result, there is currently a great deal of public attention on the public sector’s capabilities, innovation, integrity, and inclusion, as well as a shift from using external consultancies to harnessing internal capacity and capability. The Hub has been developed to help respond to these challenges.

Why the UNSW Public Partnerships and Impact Hub is different

At the Hub, we flip the focus from the university to its partners. We’re different because, through a co-design process, we take the time to engage with and learn what leaders in the public sector want and need from their people. We then design material and educational offerings to meet those specific needs.

We’re making co-production the foundation of the Hub as we want to champion the expertise of public sector leaders, utilising their lived experience to inform the services we offer. This process ensures that we place the current and future needs of the public sector at the core of all our work.

The types of services we offer

The UNSW Public Partnerships and Impact Hub will partner with government and non-government leaders to help build their capability through:

  1. Bespoke professional short courses, which can be taken alone or banded together for graduate or Masters qualifications.
  2. Tailored service partnerships that utilise UNSW expertise to tackle current policy challenges, while using UNSW's educational experience to build your team’s capability.
  3. Access to evidence-based work by international leaders into how the public sector can respond to calls for better engagement of a more assertive and diverse citizenry.
  4. Use of the John Howard Library Research Room in Old Parliament House for Hub partners and Masters students.
