ECU has a longstanding commitment to engaging and serving our communities. Increasing social complexity creates an imperative for the University and communities to work together and share ideas, knowledge and expertise in critical issues such as health and wellness, social justice, education, science, business, the environment and community wellbeing.
We value and enjoy the many connections and partnerships at a local, national and international level, with each level being equally important.
The Northern Suburbs Community Legal Centre's Joondalup branch is based on ECU's Joondalup campus. The Centre provides an opportunity for students to gain practical experience in a real-world professional environment and to support the provision of a valuable service to the community.
The ECU Psychological Services Centre is the training clinic for postgraduate students providing counselling, psychotherapeutic services and psychological assessments for members of the community.
The ECU Health and Wellness Institute aims to improve health and wellness outcomes within the community.
ECU's Business and Innovation Centre is Western Australia's premier purpose-built business facility, providing flexible low-cost accommodation, services and management support for new and small businesses.
