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 is committed to ongoing investment in its staff and to fostering a high-performance work culture.

ACU helps staff reach their potential: In November 2015, ACU was recognised for its leading-practise workplace supports for a fourth year and was awarded a citation for Employer of Choice for Gender Equality.  The Federal Government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) awarded the citation after a rigorous assessment of ACU’s practices that support the career development and the full participation of women and men in the workplace.

Feedback from our staff opinion survey (myVoice) reflects that our staff enjoy a collegial atmosphere and feel a strong engagement with ACU’s mission and values.  Our ongoing training and development opportunities help staff members build upon their strengths to shape and develop their career pathway.  ACU also offers specific programs for staff members moving into management positions to equip them with effective and dynamic leadership skills.
