At the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership, researchers and students are working towards addressing some of humanity’s biggest challenges. Through teaching, research, policy development and innovation for the humanitarian sector the Centre strives to better serve communities affected by crisis with more responsive, efficient and relevant actions. The Centre aims to transform the way the humanitarian workforce is led, how humanitarian organisations operate, and challenging current approaches to humanitarian crisis response. The Centre is a collaboration between Deakin and Save the Children Australia.

The Centre's success is built on creating a hybrid system between practitioners and academia which promotes engagement with students, practitioners and stakeholders in a way that ensures their work has a measurable impact. Vital support from partner organisations means it can continue to fill an internationally recognised gap in education, innovation and research and export its programmes globally.
