2022 State of the University Address

ANU staff are invited to join the Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor for the 2022 State of the University Address. 

WHAT IS THE STATE OF THE UNIVERSITY ADDRESS? 

The address is an opportunity for staff to hear from the Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor about their vision for ANU and the year ahead. In its seventh year, the address sets the scene for our future ambitions in connection to the ANU Strategic Plan and reflects on our recent challenges and achievements. 

State of the University has become an important University tradition, being one of the few times all ANU staff come together and is even more significant as we continue our year-long 75th anniversary celebrations

After the address, attendees are invited to stay for a free BBQ lunch on the University Avenue Lawns. As a part of the University's commitment to reaching net-zero emissions by 2025, we would appreciate if you could bring your own plate or container to reduce waste.
