Family Wellbeing project featured in IRU

    In 2007, James Cook University (JCU) became a member of the Innovation Research Universities (IRU) Australia. IRU includes Flinders University, Griffith University, Latrobe University, Murdoch University, Western Sydney University and the University of Canberra.

    IRU Chair Professor Paddy Nixon states “The universities in the IRU champion access and equity, with a student-centred approach that values innovation in teaching and learning. They are research universities with a commitment to new knowledge and its application. IRU members’ commitment to deliver impact spans local, national, and international communities.”

    For its 20th anniversary this year, the IRU produced a publication to showcase the impacts of its education and research on regional communities over the past twenty years.
    Each member university was asked to provide three impact case studies. For JCU, the 3 case studies featured are: the impact of the medical and other clinical schools; the impact of the cyclone testing station on more resilient housing; and the impact Family Wellbeing (FWB) empowerment training on First Nations Community wellbeing.
