Vision 2033 launch

A message from Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Zlatko Skrbis:

Over the last three weeks, I had the pleasure of visiting all ACU campuses to introduce staff to Vision 2033, our strategy direction for the next decade.

I spoke about ACU being at a strategic inflection point to either change to embrace new opportunities, remain on an unstable path, or, indeed, face the inevitable decline. The difficult organisational changes made, as well as the successes achieved during the last year, are providing a solid base to address many plateauing organisational fundamentals.

Vision 2033 sets the direction for the next stage of ACU’s journey and presents the opportunity to build a stronger, more agile and resilient ACU. Endorsed by the Senate, this vision places the human person and its flourishing at the core, with our mission and values at the heart of all we do. You can watch the Vision 2033 video below.

Our Catholic identity and mission have been a constant since our formation three decades ago, despite operating in an environment of rapid change. It is this same Catholic identity and mission that we will build upon over the next 10 years, as they provide us with distinct characteristics and opportunities to make a unique contribution to the higher education landscape.

As a leading Catholic university, our vision is to enable flourishing lives, foster thriving communities and forge an ethical future.

To achieve this, we will provide a learning environment that emphasises the growth of the whole person, while offering educational opportunities that lead to future-ready career outcomes. We will serve communities through connection and collaboration, address issues of national significance, promote human dignity and advance the common good, while always working to strengthen our institutional foundations.

Vision 2033 is not just a document; it is a commitment to our mission, to growth, innovation, and sustainable success. Vision 2033 is designed to navigate the challenges of the future strategically whilst being highly responsive to contemporary needs, ensuring that we not only adapt but thrive and provide impactful contributions to the communities we serve.

I look forward to working with all of you on our vision over the next decade.
