How we got here

During the latest Directions consultation phase from July to September, you shared your valuable input on six Directions through online and leader-led discussions, workshops, forums and written submissions. 

We heard from our community in RMIT  Melbourne, Europe, Vietnam and all across the globe, including students, staff, academics, researchers, alumni and industry partners on the ambitions, priorities and values that RMIT should pursue as we journey towards 2022 and beyond.
