Service to Society
New College is more than just a place to study and live. Some examples of the many ways New Collegians have acted to make a difference, locally and globally, are:
A team from the NCSA travel to work with children in the Bourke community and encourage disadvantaged children to broader their horizons and to become all they can be.
Since 2004 New Collegians have joined teams from the wider UNSW community to travel overseas to build houses for underprivileged people in locations such as Cambodia, Fiji, Philippines, Thailand and Mongolia.
Some residents have taken part in the volunteer SHACK tutoring program for local disadvantaged high school students. One year ‘New’ provided over 40% of UNSW tutors. Residents regularly carry out fundraising for and donate to various charities such as Oxfam, Rotoract, World Vision, Live Below the Line and UNICEF.
