Supporting our mission statement

We have three core academic functions:

  • research and innovation
  • teaching and learning, and the student experience
  • engagement

Strategic leadership of each of these areas is provided, on a university-wide basis, by a pro-vice-chancellor.

Delivery of our core functions occurs in our three academic faculties:

The faculties consists of a number of academic units, including schools, research institutes and research centres. Each faculty is also led and managed by a pro-vice-chancellor.

This is the academic map of the University. We envisage the core functions as institutional activities cutting across the three faculties.
