Volunteers can give their time and talents to Deakin in many ways, including:

Sponsorship of Activities

One of Deakin's key features is its active student community across its four campuses. This provides opportunities to sponsor a diverse array of activities through formal sponsorship agreements (either in-kind or cash contributions) and allows donors to appreciate the benefits of engagement with the vibrant student and staff community.

These opportunities include sponsorship of events, association with Orientation Week, and participation in recreation activities.
