With a focus on global, sustainable, learning and Indigenous futures we enable our students, staff and community in the pursuit of just, ethical and thriving societies. We do this in partnership with the communities we serve in Western Australia and across the Indian Ocean and South China Sea.
Building on the research and teaching expertise from across the faculty’s three schools, and connecting with Curtin’s global network, the ‘Futures Platforms’ provide opportunities for collaboration and create novel pathways for impact.
The Platforms support deep engagement and highlight the importance of Humanities scholarship in making a difference.
