Our Logo story
The GUMURRII Student Success Unit (SSU) logo was designed by Indigenous artist Marcus Lee. The graphic symbolises Griffith’s five physical campuses with the five traditional owners of the land. It also depicts the career pathways to learning and development joined by the red to symbolise their journey at Griffith University.
