University of Canberra
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.
UC exists for the following purposes:
- To provide education which offers high quality transformative experiences to everyone suitably qualified, whatever their stage of life and irrespective of their origins.
- 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.
- 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.
