Vice-Chancellor and President

Message from the Vice-Chancellor

I am delighted that you are considering a career with the University of Adelaide.

The decade commencing in 2013 will take the University of Adelaide to the eve of its 150th anniversary, and marks the beginning of a new period of strategic re-assertion of the distinctive University of Adelaide experience. The new Strategic Plan, Beacon of Enlightenment, sets out to recapture the vision of the University's founder, its first Vice-Chancellor Dr Augustus Short.

In a rapidly changing environment, the University of Adelaide is clear about its goals and intentions - we are an international institution that embraces the ideal of the research university, where the union of teaching and research, combined in a search for impartial truth is fundamental; where the small group learning experience is supported by the innovative use of flexible learning technologies; and the ground-breaking work of our world-class researchers crosses disciplinary boundaries to creatively address the world's great problems.

This vision needs imaginative, skilled people to support it.

Our bold new agenda will be underpinned by responsive services and productive partnerships. Over the coming decade, the University of Adelaide will undertake a transformational journey in which the quality and dedication of our people, the strategic use of our technology resources, and the clarity of our vision will determine what kind of university we will be by our sesquicentenary.

I hope you are inspired by our vision, and the opportunity to join us in our quest to become Australia's most distinctive university.

Professor Warren Bebbington
Vice-Chancellor and President
