Good directors talk about action, great directors take it. Get an overview of our directorates – the departments, offices, units and teams that ensure the day-to-day running of ACU – as well as the directors they report into. 

On the path to impact

ACU is more than its campuses and cafes. Our university is a living, breathing ecosystem of academics, staff and students, who each bring to it their skills and experience – and willingness to learn for a better world for everyone.

So this ecosystem flourishes, each directorate, faculty, office and unit is overseen by one or more directors. These directors specialise in a vital function of the University, including learning and teaching, student services, strategy, operations, academia and research.
