In response to student and graduate feedback, the McCusker Centre for Citizenship Alumni Committee was established in mid-2019.

Our Alumni Committee consists of current UWA students and graduates who have completed a McCusker Centre for Citizenship internship or unit. The Alumni Committee meets approximately once a month to plan events and opportunities for alumni to network, upskill and contribute towards the community.

Alumni events

In 2019, the McCusker Centre for Citizenship Alumni Committee received a UWA Alumni Grant to support events. Since then, the Alumni Committee has held a series of events aimed at bringing together interns, alumni and community partners to network and explore active citizenship.

Events have included the inaugural 2019 networking event, Catch-Up & Connect, with more than 70 students and members of partner organisations in attendance, a networking sundowner in 2020 exploring how community leaders stayed active in their communities and adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic, and a panel event in 2022 spotlighting local community leaders doing valuable work in the social impact space.
