Join us to celebrate the many and varied cultures of Victoria University, during Cultural Diversity Week 2022!

Victoria University is an accessible and friendly university.

We believe in embracing cultural difference – so we can be ourselves and feel empowered to achieve success.

We are proud to be one of the most culturally diverse universities in Australia.

Our students and staff:

  • represent over 90 different cultures
  • speak over 200 different languages.

There are lots of fun activities taking place throughout the week.

You can join as many or as few sessions as you would like.

Watch a sand art representation of our multicultural community commissioned by Victoria University Student Union (VUSU).

When: Monday 21 March until Friday 25 March
Where: VU Student Life Facebook

Create a dish from your culture, post a photo and explain where it’s from.
