What is The Centre for Social Impact?

The Centre for Social Impact UWA (CSI UWA) is a catalyst for change in our world, creating and delivering education that transforms, research that informs best practice, and public engagement that inspires and mobilises change makers.

CSI UWA is part of a national collaboration with UNSW Australia and Swinburne University of Technology. Together, the three universities form the Centre for Social Impact, which takes a systems approach to developing innovative solutions to the biggest social challenges today, with a vision for a better Australia tomorrow.

Our Values



Treating everyone with kindness and respect, and working with others for a greater purpose.


Asking ourselves the important questions and working towards innovative solutions through education, research, and public engagement.


Mobilising internal and external energy to take action that creates successful outcomes for people and drives social progress.

What we do

CSI UWA nurtures a growing community of social impact leaders in Western Australia, and drives positive social change for the people of Western Australia.

We educate, empower and inspire the social impact leaders of today and tomorrow through postgraduate programs and the undergraduate unit, Changing the World: Social Innovation, Finance and Enterprise.
We research to discover and generate evidence and knowledge that matters, and connect our knowledge to people who deliver change. We evaluate the impact of social programs and initiatives using robust quantitative and qualitative tools of analysis.
We engage with people across all sectors to build a community of social impact practice and connect change makers locally and globally. Our events, partnerships and collaborative initiatives facilitate dialogue, debate and community impact.
