We are pleased to announce that Griffith University will host a SERVICE-LEARNING SUMMIT from 13-15 November, 2019 at its Gold Coast campus. We have secured an excellent Keynote speaker and workshop presenter, Dr Richard Kiely. See brief information on his expertise below. 

The Summit will explore a range of topics within SL and have a refreshing and innovative format that will ensure you gain maximum benefit from attending whether you are new to the concept of SL, or are looking for more of a masterclass experience.  We will provide details of cost shortly.  In line with the nature of SL, we are planning to use social enterprises for catering and keep the cost for participants as low as possible.

To be sure you secure a place at the Summit, please lodge your interest here:
