Shape your university
RMIT is a unique institution. Its founding mission in 1887 was to develop “a skilled hand and cultivated mind”.
Almost 130 years on, the mission remains constant – the best way to deliver it is, of course, always open for debate.
Our teaching, research and partnerships combine to create value in the global economy, support enterprise, and serve the needs of diverse communities.
Now we are shaping RMIT for the next five years, to make the most of its people, knowledge and learning opportunities in a fast-changing world.
Please join us in the conversation to ShapeRMIT.

Transforming the Future
The Strategic Plan: Transforming the Future 2015 sets out RMIT’s goals and priorities to be a global university of technology and design. It guides the development of University plans, including the Academic plan, the Research and Innovation plan, the Internationalisation Plan (PDF 462 Kb, 16p) and the annual Business plan.
RMIT’s vision is to be:
- global in attitude, action and presence, offering our students a global passport to learning and work;
- urban in orientation and creativity, shaping sustainable cities and drawing inspiration from the challenges and opportunities they provide; and
- connected through active partnerships with professions, industries and organisations to support the quality, reach and impact of our education and research.
