Why our mission matters

At ACU, our mission is our difference. Through the lens of the Catholic intellectual tradition, acting in Truth and Love, we are committed to human dignity, the pursuit of knowledge and the common good.

As a Catholic university, we are stewards of our Catholic tradition and our unique Australian heritage. Our mission defines who we are, what we do and the outcomes we strive to achieve for our students and staff. We actively support the living out of our mission in many ways and invite all our staff, students and stakeholders to join us on this journey.
