WHO THEY ARE
At Monash, the desire to make a difference informs everything we do.
But they go beyond good intentions. They make an impact, both locally and internationally. They are a global university with a presence on four continents. And our plans for the future are ambitious.
Making a difference takes energy and idealism as well as experience and wisdom. As a young university, our outlook is progressive and optimistic. They aren't mired in cynicism, tradition or convention.
They attract the best scholars, but they're not elitist. They open their doors to anyone who is prepared to work hard to make a difference.
They have seen the good achieved by Monash people in areas like green chemistry, sustainability, and accident and trauma. They are encouraged by their successes and the role theyt have played in them.
They have five local campuses throughout Victoria, two international locations in Malaysia and in South Africa, and centres in the People's Republic of China, Italy and India. Each provides an environment that identifies and nurtures talent – and turns that talent into ability.
They believe the best way to help their people meet the challenges they face is to provide a supportive environment. We champion and support our students so they have a memorable university experience. It's a friendly university – no matter which campus you attend.
From collaborative research opportunities, to building community relationships, their focus is always on how they can empower our people to make a positive impact on the world. Things like the bionic eye and the anti-flu drug Relenza.
Shared ambitions move us forward, faster. The more relevant, useful and powerful connections they can make, the greater our impact will be.
Their motto Ancora Imparo ("I am still learning") reminds us that the search for knowledge never ends. They are fired with a restless ambition that pushes us to do things better, to set new benchmarks and to break new ground.
In order for their students and staff to positively impact their communities and the world, they must equip them and inspire them – so they can be agents of change.
