SPORTS & CULTURAL FUNDING


THE MOVE AWAY FROM ALCOHOL SPONSORSHIPS

In 2018, the University of New England made a decision to move away from alcohol-related sponsorships for all UNE entities including staff departments, sporting clubs and JCR's of UNE's residential college systems. Whilst this decision aims to promote a healthy and inclusive campus life, as well as address the often untenable obligation to consume alcohol to fulfil sponsorship requirements, UNE acknowledges that from time to time student administered clubs and JCR’s have relied on the cash sponsorships to achieve student experience activity. To enable these clubs to continue to deliver outstanding experience and support to UNE’s college students, the University will accept sponsorship requests to provide a consistent level of funding so that no student activity is affected. 

See the Vice-Chancellors statement to students here.
