At Murdoch, we strive to lead the way in education and research that will have a positive impact on the world. This vision starts at the very top of the organisation and is found throughout our University.
Meet our leaders
The Senate is the governing body of Murdoch University, promoting high performance through fairness, transparency and accountability across the University.
Murdoch is led by a Vice Chancellor and a group of senior executives who are responsible for the strategic management and development of all aspects of University business.
Murdoch University was established in 1976 under the provisions of the Murdoch University Act 1973 (The Act). The Act makes provision for a body corporate in perpetual succession and defines the functions and constitution of the University.
The Act also makes provision for Murdoch University By-Laws, Statutes and regulations.
All subsidiary legislation for the University is available in the University’s policy management system, Policy and Procedure Manager (PPM). The PPM includes the By-Laws, Statutes, Regulations, Rules, Policies, Procedures, Guidelines and Standards.
