How can we continue to contribute to the development of prosperous, equitable and sustainable environments in which every member of our global community can thrive?

While the pandemic has, in many ways, felt like being in a state of suspension, the drivers of change have been moving around in unpredictable and unprecedented ways. Across the globe we can observe how social distancing has altered our relationship with place, technology, community and governments, intensifying shifts, exacerbating inequalities and accelerating the trajectory of change.

We are exploring what it means to be an international university in the fast-changing world, and our place and purpose in the society and communities where we operate. As we shift our focus to the future and towards 2025, we consider how COVID-19 has changed the way we define and deliver our core functions – creating new opportunities for learning, research, innovation, scientific cooperation and the transition to a low-carbon, digitally integrated economy.

Great work is already being done all around RMIT, in thinking through how we continue to contribute to the development of prosperous, equitable and sustainable societies and environments in which all members of our global community can thrive.
