RMIT is celebrating its birthday in style, with events at its Australian and Vietnam campuses bringing together staff, students and alumni.
Students and staff will be able to enjoy free food, music, roving performance artists dressed in historical costume – harking back to the University’s origins as the Working Men’s College, music, entertainment and much more.
Vice-Chancellor and President, Martin Bean CBE, said that in celebrating its past, the University was looking to shape its future.
“We are currently having a conversation with students, staff, alumni and industry on how the University can plan for success over the next five years, and these events are part of celebrating what has made the University what it is today,” Martin said.
“Come along, have fun, connect with RMIT’s community, find out about our fascinating history, help us celebrate and discover what makes us a leading global university of technology and design.”
Events have already been held at the University’s Ho Chi Minh City campus, and this week Brunswick, Bundoora and City campuses will play host to more Founders’ Celebrations.
Hanoi campus will host an event on 23 August, and Singapore is joining in too.
Get involved and come along to:
