Monash is a university of transformation. The desire to make a difference informs everything we do. We see a brighter future as more than just possible - it is something for which we are directly responsible; something we can help create. Monash is a university of progress and optimism. We see a brighter future as more than just possible - we see it as something for which we are directly responsible; something we can help to create. It is our role to tackle the big questions and meet the challenges the future holds - and we will do this by ensuring we are a truly excellent, international and inclusive institution. Above all, we will do this through our education and our investigation, which is why we have an ambition to become one of the world's top research and teaching institutions. We're getting there fast but we want to make our improvement even faster. Our people are our most valued asset. Monash academics are among the very best in the world, our professional staff are revolutionising the way we operate as an organisation and the success of our students continues to be limited only by the extent of their own imagination. Our global footprint is the broadest of any Australian university and we will continue to engage with the world on all fronts, including research, teaching and collaborative partnerships. But we want to be more than agents of community action and development - we want to embed ourselves in the communities that we serve. Only by doing these things can the change that we seek to effect be as relevant and powerful as we want it to be.
