At Swinburne, we cultivate and respect the strength that difference and cultural diversity creates.
Through our Charter of Cultural Diversity, our diverse community and the many cultural events we host each year, Swinburne continues to be a role model for multicultural excellence.
Swinburne was the first university in Australia to launch a Charter of Cultural Diversity. It reaffirms and extends acknowledgement and respect for the many cultures that make up the Swinburne community.
The Charter is underpinned by a set of Cultural Objectives, with initiatives in the areas of Culture and Capability, Teaching and Learning, Research and Development, Engagement and International Collaboration.
