Younger than most other prestigious U.S. research universities, Duke University consistently ranks among the very best. Its graduate and professional schools — in business, divinity, engineering, the environment, law, medicine, nursing and public policy — are among the leaders in their fields. Duke enrolls more than 16,000 students in its undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs, and its world-class faculty is helping to expand the frontiers of knowledge. The university has a strong commitment to applying knowledge in service to society, both near its North Carolina campus and around the world.
CQUniversity is proud to be recognised as Australia’s most inclusive university with some of the highest ratios of students from disadvantaged, mature age, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, and first-in-family backgrounds.

RADIUS, Simon Fraser University
RADIUS is a social innovation hub based at the Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University. At RADIUS, social innovators and entrepreneurs are collectively working towards a transformed economy that is dynamic, just, sustainable, and resilient. Our work is to collaboratively build the shared capacity, networks, and solutions needed to help get us there. We don’t have all the answers but believe a transformed economy will be built by community-led solutions and the redistribution of leadership, which centres on those who have been historically and persistently marginalized.
