Cardinal George Pell

There has been speculation about the name of the Pell Centre at ACU’s Ballarat Campus, with some suggestions that the University has made a “recent decision” to retain its name.

The ACU Senate will not take any action until the legal process has definitively finished.
That also is the position of the Australian Government, and the Governor General in relation to the Order of Australia.

At the point of final legal resolution, the University’s Senate will then consider the position, in line with established policies and procedures.

This has been a very difficult process for many in our community. Our thoughts and prayers as always are with all survivors of sexual abuse and their families.
