About the College

"La Trobe has a distinguished tradition of engaged research and expanding educational opportunity for the communities it serves. Building on this tradition the new College has a critical role in the University's strategy and future development. We want to create a College which is a dynamic academic community, a flourishing academic community; one in which students are inspired by their teachers, and indeed teachers inspire research that has a great impact beyond the University and upon the community and the great issues of today."

Emeritus Professor Anthony McGrew, Inaugural Pro Vice-Chancellor for the College of ASSC

The College provides high level academic leadership to schools and departments, focusing on strategic planning in teaching and research. It aims to realise academic goals in relation to intellectual focus, institutional growth and performance improvement within the context of our strategic plan, Future Ready 2013–2017, and beyond.

The College is responsible for the provision of policy development, our academic staffing profile, load planning and course profile, student recruitment and quality assurance across schools.

We offer a range of general and specialist undergraduate, postgraduate and higher degree by research courses. These degrees are tailored to meet the needs of our students ensuring their readiness to work in changing industry environments.
