Aurora Alliance

Originally formed in 2016, Aurora is a consortium of research-intensive universities deeply committed to the social impact of our activities, and with a history of engagement with our communities. Our overall vision is to use our academic excellence in education and research to influence societal change. In the first phase of our collaboration, we have prioritized maximising societal impact of research, strengthening diversity and inclusion, and using student engagement to drive innovation in teaching and learning.
