Overview

Murdoch University is a research-led university with a reputation for world-class research in select areas of knowledge. Our researchers engage with significant social and scientific challenges of our time that include: climate change, food security and production, infectious diseases, mental health, politics and governance. Additionally, we have a reputation for excellence in teaching fuelled by our enthusiasm for research and the dissemination of new knowledge for the benefit of our communities both locally and abroad. Murdoch University aims to create leaders, innovative thinkers and problem solvers who will make a difference, wherever they may work in whatever role they occupy. Currently we have more than 19,000 students and 1,400 staff working together to build the foundations for a better, more sustainable world where there is equity and social justice, sufficient food for all and where the processes that contribute to health and ill health are understood and controlled. At Murdoch we place research at the centre of everything we do. It is as much a part of the student experience as it is at the heart of our hiring policies. Research is embedded in our teaching and forms the spine of our degree programs. Through this approach we 'future proof' the qualifications of our students and ensure that they have the skill base to adapt to an ever-changing world of opportunity.

Mission Statement

Murdoch has a strong record in research, teaching and community engagement, providing the basis for the development of a 21st century agenda for the University. In each of these fields there are many avenues for advancement and it is essential to identify where and how the University can and will best focus its efforts. Any such efforts need to be guided by three core strategic objectives: the production of internationally competitive research the delivery of world-class degree courses the active promotion of societal engagement and knowledge partnerships at the local, national and international levels.
