Our vision is to be one of the most influential universities in Australia and the Asia–Pacific region
We believe in a remarkable tomorrow, in doing our best and supporting others to do theirs.
Our founders knew professional and industrial environments constantly vary and that universities needed to equip their students with the skills to adapt and lead positive change for the future.
We’ve never lost sight of our progressive beginnings and everything we do—from education to research and community engagement—is designed to not only meet, but improve the new world our students, graduates and communities will encounter.
The mission of Griffith University is to engage in outstanding scholarship that makes a major contribution to society and to produce groundbreaking research. Students will be provided with an excellent education and the capacity to develop and apply knowledge to exercise influence and make meaningful life-long contributions to their communities.
