Widening Participation and Outreach

 

Widening Participation and Outreach

Widening Participation and Outreach (WPO) is the University of Sydney’s flagship schools outreach program (formerly Compass). We work with school students who are generally under-represented in higher education: Low Socio-Economic Status (Low SES), Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and regional and remote students. Our program provides students with the confidence and motivation to access and succeed in higher education
