Building a brighter future, together

Since opening our doors in 1974, Murdoch University has been committed to making education accessible to all. Our new Strategy reaffirmed our purpose, focusing on three strategic themes, and three core activities. Our journey has seen us become a leading voice in conservation science, a place that encourages diversity and acknowledges the wrongs of the past, to support a more inclusive and equitable future. It’s why we are committed to building a brighter future, together.

Our People are Building a Brighter Future 

From nursing to accountancy, our people share our purpose and help to change lives and society for the better through their education, research and community engagement.

Our journey to an equitable future

As the first university in Australia to introduce a flexible admissions system that considered factors beyond academic results, Murdoch remains committed to making education accessible for all.  We empower diverse voices with unique perspectives, to help us find solutions to societal challenges. 

First choice for First Nations People  

At Murdoch, we believe that change happens when you acknowledge the wrongs of the past and support Aboriginal people.  From our first inaugural Aboriginal graduate in 1982 to the hundreds behind her – still more than any other Western Australian university, we remain committed to being the first choice for First Nations people.
