Welcome to the Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability

The Centre

The Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability provides a platform for collaborative, inter-disciplinary work across the School of Business and Governance, all schools within Murdoch University and outside institutions. The Centre seeks to advance teaching and research in areas that are at the heart of key global challenges and relevant to future university graduates and society at large.

The Centre's objectives are to:

  • be an outward-facing and socially relevant organisation that engages with the communities it wishes to serve;
  • engage in high quality teaching and research to shape new thinking and practice on key aspects of responsible citizenship and sustainability; and
  • create an environment that is conducive to collaboration and promotes the development of research students and early career scholars.
