Our people

The commitment and drive of our highly-skilled academic staff has earned us a global reputation for outstanding achievement in teaching and learning

This was highlighted with a Spotlight Award at the 2018 Global Teaching Excellence Awards, recognising us among the world’s best institutions for teaching excellence. 

The University was recently ranked 31st in the world, and sixth in Australia, in the Times Higher Education (THE) University Impact Rankings, released in April 2020. The impact rankings demonstrate the difference the University is making to the world we live in and the positive impact our academic and professional staff are delivering to communities locally, nationally and globally.

We have also again been recognised by the Federal Government as one of the best workplaces in Australia for gender equality, receiving the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation.

Our staff are encouraged and empowered to find innovative ways to solve real-world problems and collaborate with some of the most brilliant minds across the globe.
