Strengthening universities

Strong universities are a cornerstone of strong societies, and make a vital contribution to the social, economic and cultural development of every nation. But they do so in a period of dynamic change.

Globalisation, soaring demand, and the fast-changing needs of the labour market have all placed new pressures on a sector that is already rapidly expanding. And with a third of the Commonwealth under the age of 30, these challenges look set to continue.

The ACU’s work in this area focuses on supporting the systems, structures, and skills that underpin the university mission - now and in the future. Through innovative platforms and projects, we connect universities across borders to help meet demand, improve performance, and build institutional capacity.
