HomeThe CentrePartnering with CHL

Collaboration is integral to the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership. Partnership was fundamental to our founding and continues to influence our ongoing mission to transform the humanitarian sector.

As an innovative joint venture between Save the Children and Deakin University, collaboration has always been at the heart of the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership. This founding partnership has paved the way for the Centre’s unique spread of capabilities and widespread value we can offer our partners.

  1. World-class research with a focus on evidence-based leadership practice
  2. Accredited higher education and course offerings
  3. Deep collaborative networks in the humanitarian sector and beyond.

We encourage prospective partners of all kinds—whether research or academic institution, private organisation, not-for-profit, government department, or any other potential partner—to join us in whichever capacity suits your organisation and contribute to this transformation.
