Welcome back

Tuesday, 09 February 2016


For those of you commencing at ECU for the first time, or returning to your studies, 2016 is a special year.

It marks 25 years since ECU was established and shows that this University has achieved in a few decades what has taken many other universities centuries.

The theme of our 25th anniversary celebrations is ‘making a difference’. Throughout 2016 we will be recognising all those students, staff and alumni who have transformed their own lives, as well those of others.

Among this group are Hollywood actors, CEOs, Triple J Unearthed winners, counter-terrorism experts, politicians, Olympians and cancer researchers.

It also includes businesspeople, artists, teachers, nurses, scientists and lawyers – people who are not as visible but who make real and lasting contributions to our community.

I invite you to join us in celebrating ECU’s 25th anniversary. Details on our upcoming events are now available at our new website.

I also encourage you to contribute to this site by using the hashtag #ecu25.

I look forward to meeting you at these anniversary events and I wish you the best of luck for your studies in 2016!

Professor Steve Chapman
