To celebrate its tenth anniversary of teaching, the Asia Pacific Centre for Social Investment and Philanthropy (APCSIP) at Swinburne University of Technology has published a booklet highlighting the individual journeys of eleven of its students and alumni.
The booklet called 10 years, 11 stories shares the experiences of a small number of students from the Master of Social Investment and Philanthropy program taught at Swinburne.
“Over the course of the past ten years, more than 120 students have studied at the Asia-Pacific Centre for Social Investment and Philanthropy and have gone on to make their mark in the world of philanthropy in Australia,” Swinburne Chancellor Bill Scales said at the launch of the booklet.
“Some are directing their passion towards developing their own giving, while others are contributing to the professionalism of philanthropic practice.
“Each has a unique story to tell about how they are contributing to raising the level of practice in social investment in Australia,” he said.
Swinburne University says that APCSIP has been a pioneer in the delivery of education and research in social investment and philanthropy, offering courses in grantmaking, philanthropy and social investment.
The Centre is also a founding partner of the Centre for Social Impact and collaborates with a wide range of universities and networks globally.
