Message from our Vice-Chancellor and President
"Over the course of our one hundred year history, we have proudly focused on creating education and training opportunities for students in the West of Melbourne and beyond.
Our aim is to be a great university of the 21st century. We will provide exceptional value to our students, guiding them to succeed through personalised, flexible and industry relevant learning opportunities.
The applied and translational research by our staff and their students, as well as our graduates as employees and citizens, will enhance social and economic outcomes in our heartland. Healthier, smarter and more sustainable communities will result.
In the 21st century it is almost impossible to be a successful participant in the global knowledge economy or society without a tertiary education. A great university in the 21st century needs to provide an offer to students that emphasises and values diversity and inclusivity. Victoria University is your university of opportunity and success." Professor Peter Dawkins, Vice-Chancellor and President
