Alumni award winner Campbell Rose credits his Victoria University experience as having defined his career.

"Victoria University gave me the grounding from which I have built my whole career - from representing Australia in yachting at the 1988 Seoul Olympics to joining the Western Bulldogs as Chief Executive.

VU was a fun place where I really established myself.

I learnt about ethical issues and integrity and I developed life skills to apply in a practical situation.

It has its own unique culture that suited me and I highly recommend it to prospective students.

I am humbled to receive the Outstanding Alumni Service Award.

During my time as CEO of the Bulldogs, I helped formalise the partnership with VU. I’m committed to a VU education because I wouldn't be where I am now without Victoria University.”
