Strategic Intent

ANU was founded in 1946, with a suite of disciplines and a set of tasks that reflected the global context in which Australia found itself at the time. Three quarters of a century later those foundational activities remain central to the place of ANU in the world, but the national and global context has changed. Our enduring mission remains unchanged: to create capability for a nation seeking its place in the world.
