Since opening its doors in 1975, Griffith University has come to be regarded as one of Australia's most innovative tertiary institutions and one of the most influential universities in the Asia-Pacific region.

Griffith University was the very first university in Australia to offer degrees in Asian studies and Environmental studies to its students and remains a pioneer in these fields. The University has grown to be a large multi-campus institution with internationally recognised strengths in teaching and research. Griffith now offers more than 300 degrees across five campuses and is home to more than 43,000 students from 131 countries. Griffith is Australia’s ninth largest higher education provider.

Asia Pacific Leadership Summit

In spite of various difficulties, our chapter managed to maintain our Gold Standing, and I was particularly proud to receive on behalf of my fellow 2019 Chapter Committee the award for the Best Professional Development Event 2019. I attended and supported the joint event with Griffith Alumni, where we heard from Dr Timo Dietrich about Behavioural Marketing for bringing positive social change. It was fantastic, and the first event being conducted concurrently in Gold Coast and live streamed to Griffith Alumni all over the world. We had equal "attendance" in the room and online, and are definitely looking to continue our relationship with Griffith Alumni and seeing this broader online reach developed.
