ECU's 25th Anniversary

ECU’s anniversary year is here! 2016 will see us celebrating the 25th anniversary of the establishment of Edith Cowan University, and all the achievements of the last quarter-century. We have an exciting range of events and activities lined up for the year - read on to find out more! One of the key new initiatives will be the launch of our new Alumni Awards, which will recognise key alumni achievers. It’s going to be a big year...

Alumni Awards 

We will be recognising the success of our alumni for the first time in 2016 through the Alumni Awards program. We are seeking information about alumni who have gone on to extraordinary success – this could be in their career, their commitment to the community or their leadership ability. One extraordinary alumnus will receive our inaugural Alumni Award, to be presented at a special ceremony in Perth in November 2016.

Anyone can nominate a member of the ECU alumni community for the 2016 award; please see these guidelines for more information, and to nominate someone today.

If you would like to nominate someone, please ensure that your nomination form is complete and submitted by 5pm on 30 May 2016 to the Alumni Relations team.

Your chance to host a reunion

Join in the celebrations by organising your own reunion event. To celebrate our 25th anniversary, ECU is offering the opportunity to apply for financial support of up to $500 per group, to support alumni reunions in 2016. Email the Alumni Relations team for more information.

Art installation

As well as celebrating the last 25 years, we’re delighted to be recognising the foundations of ECU: the predecessor colleges that came before 1991. In acknowledgment of the wonderful foundation that these colleges provided for ECU, we’ll be commissioning an art installation for Joondalup campus. College alumni and former staff, you’ll receive an email with more details about how you can get involved in the next few weeks.

Memory lane

Explore ECU’s past and present on Flickr. Over the coming months we will be showcasing a visual history of the University and our special events on Flickr, to share with the alumni community. Take a stroll down memory lane, or see what you missed at one of our recent alumni events.

If you would like to contribute images or know the story behind a particular photo we would love to hear from you.

25 scholarships for 25 years

Hundreds of you supported the University philanthropically last year, to allow students who may otherwise not be able to access an education to come to ECU. In our anniversary year we would like to take this to the next level, and celebrate our 25 years by providing 25 scholarships through philanthropy - from alumni, staff and the community. Look out for the 2016 Alumni Annual Appeal, or Donate Now.

25 years, 25 faces

So many of our alumni go on to do wonderful things, and have success in a variety of fields. The anniversary gives us a chance to showcase the stories of just a few of these people - we hope that you’ll feel inspired by what they have gone on to achieve! We’ll be telling the story of a graduate from each year between 1991 and present day - Check them out now!

Former staff

As well as graduates of the University, we include former staff as members of the alumni community. To celebrate the anniversary, we will be holding a special event exclusively for former staff later in 2016. If you know anyone who used to work at ECU or one of our predecessor institutions, please encourage them to email us and join the mailing list.

Anniversary events

We have lots of special 25th Anniversary events and celebrations going on this year as well as the usual offerings. Have a look at the list of Alumni Anniversary events happening.
