Associated Bodies


Donors and supporters play an important role in sustaining the University’s strategic priorities and achievements. This investment from staff, current students, graduates, church and community organisations and businesses is managed through the University Foundation. It supports teaching and research needs, outreach programs, scholarships, prizes, awards, and capital programs.

Alumni Association

The University has established the Alumni Association to maintain its relationship with its graduates. The association manages a range of University services to enhance graduates’ relationsh ip with the University and with each other, including and facilitating specific events and reunions. All graduates of Australian Catholic University are invited to join the association and can do so by accessing the Alumni Association website: http://www.acu.edu.au/alumni

Online Learning and Teaching

Online learning and teaching is a key part of the University’s flexible approach to supporting the student learning experience. As a multi-campus University we invest systematically in online learning and teaching technologies and use these either in fully online units or, in combination with face-to-face teaching in web-enhanced and distance units. This approach seeks to enrich teaching and learning experiences, to create new opportunities for learning, to strengthen and extend learning communities, to promote new ways of communicating and to provide better access to an ever-increasing range of discipline-specific education and research-based pedagogy resources.

The Learning Management System can be accessed under the eLearning on the ACU home page. The University also uses other Web 2 technologies in various units (depending upon Faculty priorities). Lecture recording is available for lectures held in large theatres – please check with your Lecturer each semester.

The Learning and Teaching Centre, particularly through the role of the Deputy Director, provides overarching co-ordination of the pedagogical, technical and developmental aspects of flexible delivery.
