Empowering Universities in Esports

At the Australian University Esports Association (AUEA), we firmly believe that control of university esports should be in the hands of the universities themselves. We recognize that universities know their students best, understand their unique cultures, and are perfectly placed to foster an esports environment that aligns with their specific goals and needs.

Our role is not to control, but rather to empower. We provide the tools, resources, and support universities need to cultivate their own vibrant esports communities. From event organization and management to funding and collaborations, we equip universities with what they need to independently drive their esports initiatives forward.

We see esports as an incredible vehicle for student engagement. It provides a platform for students to connect, compete, and collaborate, regardless of geographical location or physical abilities. Esports can foster a sense of community and belonging, offering a shared interest that can bring together diverse groups of students.

Moreover, the competitive nature of esports can enhance students’ skills and attributes such as strategic thinking, teamwork, and communication – skills that are not only essential for gaming but also highly valued in the wider world of work and life.

Our aim is to ensure that esports serves as an enriching element of the university experience, contributing to personal development, academic success, and overall student satisfaction. We champion a model of esports that aligns with educational values and objectives, putting the interests of students at the forefront.

In empowering universities to take charge of their esports endeavors, we hope to see the growth of a university esports landscape that is diverse, inclusive, competitive, and above all, reflective of the unique identities of our member universities. Together, we can shape an esports culture that truly enriches university life for students across Australia.
