Since its founding, the University has held engagement as central to its values and purpose, ensuring that its ethos as a public spirited institution finds expression through all of its endeavours.

Engagement at the University of Melbourne encompasses the mutually beneficial relationships the institution has with wider society. It connects our teaching, students and research work with communities – locally, nationally and globally – to help us achieve our academic aspirations and create economic, social and cultural value.

This understanding of engagement is reflected in the University’s three engagement commitments:
