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 of; Sustainability, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion and being the university of choice for First Nations People, which we bring to life through our core activities of Education, Research and Engagement. 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.

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.
