About this College
Griffith University, Australia

In December 1970 the Queensland Education Minister, Sir Alan Fletcher, approached the distinguished newspaper editor Sir Theodor Bray with the task of creating a new university. The brief was deceptively simple - to offer an alternative university experience to that already available in Queensland and other parts of Australia. The State Government of the time had just one other requirement, that the new university be named after Sir Samuel Walker Griffith, a former Queensland Premier, Chief Justice of Queensland and the Chief Justice of Australia. A parcel of land at Nathan (10 kilometres south of central Brisbane) was formally named Griffith University in the Queensland Parliament on 21 September 1971. The newly established Griffith Council developed a philosophy, not only to provide specialised academic courses but also to emphasise the general educational development of students. Central to this was the creation of theme-oriented schools. These schools were multi disciplinary with groups of disparate scholars integrating their research and teaching in problem-solving units. The first Vice-Chancellor, Professor John Willett, was appointed in November 1971. The university opened its doors in 1975 to 451 students in four schools: Australian Environmental Studies, Humanities, Modern Asian Studies and Science. From these small but enthusiastic beginnings, Griffith University has grown to its present size and status with an enviable national and international reputation. No institution can remain static and Griffith has been fortunate that the seeds planted by the University's founders have been nurtured and tended by its Chancellors, Sir Theodor Bray, Sir Alan Sewell, Chief Justice John Macrossan and now Ms Leneen Forde.
