Our researchers are leaders in their fields.

WE HAVE A PROUD HISTORY We were the third university established in Victoria, with a brief to be innovative and meet growing need for research and learning. Our name connects us to the story of Charles Joseph La Trobe, the first Lieutenant-Governor of the new colony of Victoria. He was a man driven by his need to make a difference to the communities he served, leaving a legacy that continues today at La Trobe University.
