At Monash, the desire to make a difference informs everything we do.

But we go beyond good intentions. We make an impact, both locally and internationally. We are a global university with a presence on four continents. And our plans for the future are ambitious.


Making a difference takes energy and idealism as well as experience and wisdom. As a young university, our outlook is progressive and optimistic. We aren’t mired in cynicism, tradition or convention.

We attract the best scholars, but we’re not elitist. We open our doors to anyone who is prepared to work hard to make a difference.

We have seen the good achieved by Monash people in areas like green chemistry, sustainability, and accident and trauma. We are encouraged by their successes and the role we have played in them.


We have five local campuses throughout Victoria, two international locations in Malaysia and in South Africa, and centres in the People’s Republic of China, Italy and India. Each provides an environment that identifies and nurtures talent – and turns that talent into ability.

We believe the best way to help our people meet the challenges they face is to provide a supportive environment. We champion and support our students so they have a memorable university experience. It’s a friendly university – no matter which campus you attend.


From collaborative research opportunities, to building community relationships, our focus is always on how we can empower our people to make a positive impact on the world. Things like the bionic eye and the anti-flu drug Relenza.

Shared ambitions move us forward, faster. The more relevant, useful and powerful connections we can make, the greater our impact will be.

Still learning

Our motto Ancora Imparo (“I am still learning”) reminds us that the search for knowledge never ends. We are fired with a restless ambition that pushes us to do things better, to set new benchmarks and to break new ground.

In order for our students and staff to positively impact their communities and the world, we must equip them and inspire them – so they can be agents of change.

Keeb kwm

Monash University was created by an Act of the State Parliament of Victoria in 1958 as a result of the Murray Report, which was commissioned in 1957 by then Prime MinisterRobert Menzies to establish the second university in the state of Victoria. The university was named after the prominent Australian general Sir John Monash. This was the first university in Australia to be named after a person, rather than a city, region or state.

The original campus was in the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Clayton (in what is now the City of Monash). The first University Council, led by Monash’s first Chancellor Sir Robert Blackwood, selected Sir Louis Matheson, to be the first Vice-Chancellor of Monash University, a position he held until 1976. The University was granted an expansive site of 100 hectares of open land in Clayton. Tus 100 hectares of land consists of the former Talbot Epileptic Colony.

From its first intake of 357 students at Clayton on 13 Lub peb hlis ntuj 1961, the university grew rapidly in size and student numbers so that by 1967, it had enrolled more than 21,000 students since its establishment. In its early years, it offered undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in engineering, tshuaj, kev kawm, kawm, Economics, politics, kev kawm, and law. It was a major provider for international student places under the Colombo Plan, which saw the first Asian students enter the Australian education system.

In its early years of teaching, research and administration, Monash was not disadvantaged by entrenched traditional practices. Monash was able to adopt modern approaches without resistance from those who preferred the status quo. A modern administrative structure was set up; Australia’s first research centres and scholarships devoted to Indigenous Australians were established.

Xyoo tsis ntev los no, the University has been prominent in medical research. A highlight of this came in 2000, when Professor Alan Trounson led the team of scientists which announced to the world that nerve stem cells could be derived from embryonic stem cells, a discovery which led to a dramatic increase in interest in the potential of stem cells. It has also led to Monash being ranked in the top 20 universities in the world for biomedicine.
