On 1 August 1946, The Australian National University (ANU) was established by an Act of Federal Parliament. Our founders envisaged an intellectual powerhouse that would take its place among the world's great universities and help Australia realise its place the region and the world.
As we near our 70th anniversary we reflect on our many outstanding achievements. For a university as young as ours, ANU has delivered a great legacy - a legacy of research excellence, of outstanding teaching and exceptional people who have made extraordinary contributions to our nation.
The University will come together on Monday, 1 August 2016 to celebrate our 70th Birthday. Join us at Llewellyn Hall from 11am as we mark this very special occasion with a series of talks looking and where we've been and where we're going as an institution.
Please note this event is currently only open to ANU staff and students.
