From the Vice-Chancellor
Be part of a breakthrough
At the University of Canberra we're working hard to become one of the world's best universities. As you'll read in the coming pages we plan to enter world university rankings by 2018. It's a bold vision, but an achievable one, particularly when we're building on a strong foundation of applied research, training some of the nation's most sought-after professionals and working closely with industry. As part of our growth and renewal in recent years, we've significantly upgraded the campus. We have new facilities for teaching, research and recreation – and the work is continuing, with projects underway with partners in health, sport and accommodation. There are opportunities to be part of the next phase of our journey, so we'd like to hear from like-minded people and organisations interested in being involved in developing available land at our Bruce campus and sharing in our success.
This document sets out what we have to offer – not just land and facilities, but access to expertise, potential staff and a vibrant campus life – and the expressions of interest processes. As you would expect from an innovative organisation, we are interested in discussing innovative projects and deal structures. We'd like to develop partnerships that are mutually beneficial and deliver something greater than the sum of their parts. We are particularly interested in hearing from highly experienced and well-credentialed organisations.
There are plenty of opportunities so I encourage you to get involved and be part of the biggest breakthrough Canberra has even seen.
I look forward to doing business with you.
