Vice Chancellor’s Staff Update - 29 April 2020

VISUAL: RMIT Vice Chancellor and President Martin Bean addresses the camera.
MARTIN BEAN SPEAKS: Wominjeka everyone.
It’s hard to believe we’re into our sixth week of working remotely and I’ve been reflecting on how much change there’s been to the way we’re living and working.
Together we’ve climbed mountains and moved mountains to set RMIT up to operate in a remote mode and I know it wasn’t easy and it still isn’t. It’s a triumph of collaboration and innovation under extraordinary circumstances.
Through the tough times, RMIT continues to be an active part of the wider community and we’re leaning into the frontline battle against COVID-19 with all the expertise and talent we have.
We’re 3D printing face shields, producing medical scrubs and collaborating on PPE masks, contributing to the race for a vaccine, and coronavirus myth busting through RMIT Fact Check.
At the same time, I want to praise the incredible efforts of our learning and teaching staff who made the impossible possible for thousands of students now studying successfully online.
We’ve just received the topline results from our first student pulse survey to see how they’re finding this new way of learning and, while we all miss campus life, feedback is generally good. Overall, they’ve found the materials and tools accessible and the online environment useful and easy to use. We’re now working through the key themes from the feedback so we can continue to enhance the remote learning experience for our students.
In other good news, we achieved a fantastic result in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings which are designed to showcase how universities are working towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Aim proud to say RMIT ranked 10th globally and we ranked number one in the world for our efforts to reduce inequality. Congratulations to all who contributed to these outstanding results.
I know I’ve been sharing a lot of difficult news lately as we all deal with the significant challenges we’re facing.
Despite the turbulent times we’re operating in, I want you to always remember what an amazing university we’re part of. Our RMIT community is filled with passion and purpose and you are truly shaping the world and transforming lives every day.
Please take care of each other. Listen for the moments when someone might need support or spot the clues that it’s a hard day.
No one should feel alone. A phone call, a team chat, a laugh, it all makes a difference.
Always remember there is professional support available to you and I encourage you to use it when you need to.
We will get through this together. Take care.
