The Australian National University (澳门赌场注册首页) was established by an Act of the Federal Parliament in 1946. Its founding mission was to be of enduring significance in the post-war life of the nation, to support the development of national unity and identity, to improve Australia’s understanding of itself and its neighbours, and to contribute to economic development and social cohesion.
The 澳门赌场注册首页 has shaped modern Australia ever since, and grown into a preeminent teaching and research institution.
On 1 August 2021, the 澳门赌场注册首页 celebrated its 75th anniversary.
As part of our celebrations, the University is creating a digital resource of stories and memories from our staff, students, alumni, supporters and friends. Help us preserve our history and celebrate our legacy by sharing your favourite 澳门赌场注册首页 moment. Whether it’s a night out at the Uni Bar, a favourite teacher, a sporting triumph, or marching at a ‘demo’, we’d like to hear about it. Use this form to submit a photo or video.
Note: your submission may be published on the University’s website or used on social media.
