Vice-Chancellor's message

Deakin is one of a new breed of global universities – agile, dynamic and innovative. 

From our beginnings as Victoria’s first regional university 42 years ago, to our current ranking among the top three per cent of universities worldwide, we have had a consistent goal – to work in partnership with local and international industries, governments, communities and educational organisations to make a difference in the world.

Deakin is one of a new breed of global universities - agile, dynamic and innovative.

Professor Jane den Hollander AO

Deakin University Vice-Chancellor

We collaborate with organisations and communities within Australia and across 40 countries around the world to provide better and more accessible individual educational outcomes and work with communities to positively contribute to growth and sustainability.

Our world-class research capabilities and facilities solve real business problems in new ways, strengthening and streamlining pathways for commercial research and commercialisation of technologies from discovery through to licensing and spin-outs.

Our graduates are smart, collaborative and entrepreneurial. We give our students opportunities to develop a global mindset through our partnerships with universities and organisations around the world that allow students to study overseas and participate in international study tours, volunteering programs and internships.

No matter where you are in Australia or the world, whether you seek a commercial, academic or community partnership, I invite you to collaborate with us. Let’s see what we can achieve together.
