Community Relations

The Community Relations field of study is coordinated by the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining, a leading research centre committed to improving the social performance of the resources industry globally. Students will develop skills and knowledge relevant to all aspects of the interactions between resource companies and their associated communities.

Originally developed in collaboration with the Minerals Council of Australia, this innovative specialisation provides a professional pathway for community relations practitioners and others working with communities in the resources sector. 

The program involves leading academics and industry practitioners from the global resources sector, and covers the latest developments in topics relating to resource projects and community relations. We aim to equip students with knowledge, skills and attitudes that will help them to understand, engage with, and contribute to the development of communities that are impacted by resource extraction and related activities.
