La Trobe University

Australia Melbourne Bendigo Albury Mildura Shepparton Sydney January 2017 + 2 more

Our Vision La Trobe will be a University known for its excellence and innovation in relation to the big issues of our time, and for its enthusiasm to make a difference. La Trobe will be one of the top three Universities in Victoria, one of the top dozen nationally and one of the top 300 internationally. Our Values In 2012, as part of the development of the University's five year strategic plan 'Future Ready' we articulated a set of values. We developed these values… [+] through a consultative process involving many La Trobe staff. The five values guide everything we do. At La Trobe University we: Take a world view Pursue ideas and excellence with energy Treat people with respect and work together Are open, friendly and honest Hold ourselves accountable for making great things happen Values are expressed through behaviours and during the first part of 2013 we will explore how La Trobe staff and students can translate our values into behaviours that generate benefits for the communities we interact with and serve. Our past La Trobe was the third university created for Victoria, and was established to be complementary to, but different from, the other two. Its founders aspired to create a university that would: Provide an accessible alternative to the two pre-existing universities Bring university education to the northern suburbs of Melbourne Excel in a number of selected disciplines Shaped by the era of our birth, La Trobe developed a distinctive ethos which joined ‘social engagement’ to the pursuit of academic excellence. Reflecting our desire to engage with the outside world, our public intellectuals became and remain among the most engaged in the nation, and our alumni are some of the most influential their generations have produced. In the 1980s and ‘90s we redefined the University through new relationships, especially in country Victoria. We are now a multi-campus university and the largest provider of higher education to Victoria’s regions. Moreover we have the largest regional enrolment of the mainland Australian universities in the Academic Ranking of World Universities ‘Top 500’. La Trobe University now has some of the world’s best researchers in the sciences and humanities contributing to the achievement of this ranking. La Trobe is a globally recognised university, transforming the lives of its students, many being the first in their family to attend university, and playing an important role in its local communities. These are achievements of which we can be justly proud. Our future Times have changed, and the manner in which we must play our part in the world, as well as the complexity and cost of academic research, have changed with them. For instance, Melbourne’s North is being transformed by population expansion and rising demand for higher education. All the regions we serve face new challenges as a result of structural changes in national and global economies along with environmental and social challenges. Students have greater choice than ever before, and expect a high quality educational experience, together with engaging, relevant and flexible curriculum. The issues facing our society, and to which our courses and research must respond, include climate change, the ageing of our population, the rise of Asia’s relevance and influence, the revolution in the medical sciences, and the resilience of societies in the face of rapid change. Other challenges will arise during the lifespan of this Plan, and La Trobe will be agile in responding to them. Our history equips us with the appropriate formula for success in such an environment. Our geography, ethos and academic strengths can be the starting points for an even livelier and stronger La Trobe that retains its relevance and remains true to its ideals. International activities La Trobe is dedicated to serving the global community through internationalisation, innovative teaching and learning methods, and research. This includes encouraging our students and staff to gain international experience, development of an internationalised curriculum and research programs, and the diversification of our student community. The University's strong international focus is manifested and continually enhanced in several key areas of the University: Teaching an internationally relevant curriculum, which prepares students to be global citizens, entrepreneurs, employers and employees a range of courses and pathways that meet the requirements of the diverse markets in which we operate, and which are delivered onshore in Victoria and Sydney, or offshore with high quality transnational teaching partners high quality academic relationships strong and productive partnerships with pathway providers onshore and offshore Research strong international research partnerships and internationally focused research Community engagement opportunities and support for international students to engage successfully in their University life and in their communities exceptionally strong engagement with employers, industry and with alumni Student mobility opportunities for our students to participate in exchange academic programs overseas and active partnerships with over 150 institutions in more than 40 countries.
