At the University of Sydney we believe that education should be accessible to all students of promise, whatever their social or cultural background. As part of this principle, we are committed to widening the participation of disadvantaged students in higher education.

Social inclusion helps to reduce social inequality, injustice and promote the value of diversity. We recognise the need to bring people together from a range of backgrounds, to best prepare them for future leadership in diverse communities.

Compass leads and supports programs and initiatives which:

⁃ build school and community capacity to attend higher education

⁃ increase participation of students from low socio-economic backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and students from regional NSW.

Compass is an initiative of The University of Sydney, funded by the Commonwealth Government's Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program and donations to the University.
