An innovative vision. A future with impact

Office of the Vice-Chancellor and President

Welcome to the Office of the Vice-Chancellor and President of Australian Catholic University.

It is a time to celebrate our successes while having the courage to ask – how can we do better? It is about being curious and persistent, creative and energetic, and keeping our Catholic mission at the centre of everything we do. It is about making changes that have a positive impact on our staff, our students, our stakeholders, and our communities.
