Navigating Community Engagement: 

Charting The Course for 21st Century

Welcome to the 6th
University-Community Engagement Conference - UCEC2019

University-Community Engagement through the process of working collaboratively allows universities and communities to actively contribute to the well beings of societies, and creating an inclusive environment.  CE serves as a response to increasing community concerns on societal issues and providing access to a greater range of solutions in addressing the escalating expectation to transform communities for a better tomorrow.


UCEC is the biennial conference promoted by the Asia-Pacific University-Community Engagement Network (APUCEN) and co-hosted by their members.  This is the first UCEC to be held in Brunei Darussalam.

UCEC Objectives
  1. To deepen critical discourse on the empowerment role of universities and their knowledge creation practice;

  2. To explore methods, strategies and experiences used in mutual community engagement and partnership among different sectors;

  3. To strengthen the capacity of universities in the process of social reform for social justice and sustainable development; and

  4. To enhance networking, and the sharing of experiences among educators, communities, as well as social development practitioners, and to highlight best-practice cases of various types of university-community engagement.
