University of Canberra (UC) is a mid-size, mid-ranked Australian university with an emphasis on applied and professional learning and research. For more information about this university, see University of Canberra (Wikipedia).

UC's 2013-2017 strategic plan emphasises developing greater flexible learning and international engagement.

A growing number of UC academics and emerging academics are working towards wider adoption of open academic practices such as the use of Wikiversity. This page lists a range of resources and projects related to this work.

Purpose[edit]

UC exists for the following purposes[1]:

  1. To provide education which offers high quality transformative experiences to everyone suitably qualified, whatever their stage of life and irrespective of their origins.
  2. To engage in research and creative practice which are of high quality and aim to make an early and important difference to the world around us.
  3. To contribute, through our education and research, to the building of just, prosperous, healthy and sustainable communities which are committed to redressing disadvantage and reconciliation with Australia’s Indigenous peoples.

Everything else - buildings, campuses, structures, titles, hierarchies, pomp, circumstance, (even committees) - may change over time if that is what is required to carry out our purposes.
