La Trobe University

At La Trobe we understand that a modern University must be outward-facing and connect with the communities that we serve. We are a university that strives to be an unrivalled partner of choice, and we work actively with industry, education, health, culture, sport and community partners to solve real-world problems, improve access to the life-changing benefits of education, boost innovation, and build economic capacity and cultural and artistic diversity   La Trobe has a strong history of delivering exceptional teaching and research partnerships that get results. From largescale industry and government projects to global alumni networks and local projects in regional communities – our partnerships are multidisciplinary and collaborative. We engage deeply with the end users of our research to ensure relevant, connected and practical outcomes. Our partners gain access to our experience, infrastructure and research capability to help them drive innovation, champion entrepreneurship, and address pressing industry and community needs. We join forces with partners in areas of research strengths as diverse as agribusiness, data analytics, digital health and cybersecurity. Our staff collaborate across disciplines to solve shared problems, co-create courses and work integrated learning programs to meet industry demand in new fields, and ensure our students have the skills employers need. We facilitate an ecosystem of researchers, entrepreneurs and industry partners to drive economic transformation in communities. Our students benefit from strong connections to industry – learning and training in the workplace well before they graduate. Driven by our passion for inclusivity and excellence, we work with community groups, sporting clubs, education providers and the not-for-profit sector to promote social justice and increased access to education. Collaboration with Indigenous organisations builds capacity to deliver social, cultural and economic aspirations. We understand the power of educational opportunity and we work with schools, TAFEs and local educators to create ambition and opportunity for all, especially in rural and regional communities.
