About Australian Catholic University
Australian Catholic University (ACU) has seven campuses around Australia. We empower students to think critically, ethically and to bring about change in their communities and professions.

As a publicly-funded university, we welcome staff and students of all beliefs and backgrounds. We are committed to providing equal access to education for all people.

Students undertake professional placements and volunteer work throughout their studies, with many securing excellent jobs before they graduate.

Community engagement is also a core part of every student's experience at ACU, to the point where it's embedded within our courses. This allows students to give back to their communities and make a difference through opportunities such as volunteer experience programs.

ACU is Australia's leading Catholic university and is supported by more than 2,000 years of Catholic intellectual tradition. As a member of the International Federation of Catholic Universities, we are devoted to communicating truth in every field of knowledge through teaching and research, as well as promoting the dignity of all people and the common good.

ACU is committed to diversity and social inclusion in its employment practices. Applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disabilities and people from culturally diverse groups are encouraged.

Australian Catholic University (ACU) welcomes Minister for Heritage Mark Speakman’s announcement today that the Mount St Mary Campus at Strathfield will be listed on the NSW State Heritage Register.

The Inclusion of ACU’s historic buildings with other sites in NSW was announced on Thursday during Australian Heritage Week.

Associate Vice-Chancellor Professor Marea Nicholson said ACU had a strong commitment to the living heritage on all of its campuses, including Strathfield.

“We are very privileged that our impressive buildings and significant social contribution have been recognised in this way,” Professor Nicholson said.

“At ACU we pride ourselves on being responsible custodians of heritage and this has been recognised recently with a number of awards.

“We welcome the opportunity to make an ongoing commitment to the living heritage on this site.”

Minister Speakman said the listing process for the State Heritage Register was one way to ensure important links with the past continue to shape the future.

Of ACU’s historic buildings, he said, “I am pleased to be able to preserve this special place not only for these remarkable pieces of architecture but also for its social significance to the many thousands of people who lived or attended the various institutions of learning which have been a part of the history of this site.

“The State Heritage Register is the state’s official list of places and items determined, in consultation with the Heritage Council of NSW, to be of importance to the whole of NSW.”

 

Among the ACU buildings listed on the heritage register are the Victorian Italianate Edmund Rice Building (dating from 1887), the Gothic chapel, the Interwar Romanesque Barron Memorial Chapel, the Mullens building, St Edmunds Building, the Creative Arts Building and arcades in the Main Central Courtyard that date back to 1931.
