Lead the delivery of University-wide quality initiatives and projects to embrace developing opportunities and trends.


At CDU we actively celebrate our diversity. We innovate, embrace new ideas, and act with courage and kindness. We're about what we can give to the world rather than what we take, and we believe in the transformative power of education. We work hard to make sure every member of our university community feels that they truly belong. Understanding that it is through our focus on our people and leveraging our differences that will make CDU the most connected university in Australia, we are striving to ensure that our culture and our community is inclusive of all our staff, students and visitors. We are committed to maintaining a culture where everyone feels respected, safe, encouraged to speak up and supported in achieving their professional goals. Applications from First Nations people, Women at all levels, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse People, People with Disability, Neurotypical and Neurodiverse People, LGBTIQ+ People, people with family and caring responsibilities and people at all stages of their careers are welcomed.
