La Trobe University
Bundoora, Australia


University description (as per official university website)

About La Trobe

With learning, teaching and research designed to enrich the world and a history of academic innovation, La Trobe is leading the way in higher education.

La Trobe University will continue to enhance its profile nationally and internationally and will achieve wide recognition for delivering socially responsible, inclusive, relevant and radical learning, teaching and research.

Strategic Planning
After taking up the post of Vice-Chancellor and President of La Trobe University in April 2007, Professor Paul Johnson undertook a process to gather information from a number of sources for the planning of the future of La Trobe. Following the release of a ‘Green Paper’ in July 2007 for broad discussion the Strategic Plan 2008-2012 was produced.

The Plan identifies key targets for the development of teaching and learning, research, internationalisation and community engagement, and of the University's support activities. The achievement of these targets will ensure La Trobe's continuing success as one of Australia's leading teaching and research universities.

La Trobe has achieved a great deal to date within the 2008-2012 planning period. These achievements are outlined in Ambitions into Achievements .

Our History

La Trobe has been one of Australia’s pioneering universities for forty years. Discover our unique history, including our motto and coat of arms.

Celebrating over 40 years of History
In 1967, 552 students enrolled at La Trobe University, the third University to open in Victoria.

It has grown to accommodate more than 26,000 students including approximately 3,500 international students from over 90 countries.

We now have a network of campuses with 15,000 students at our Melbourne campus and over 7,000 at our campuses in Albury-Wodonga, Beechworth, Bendigo, Mildura, Melbourne City and Shepparton,

University Name
La Trobe University was named after Charles Joseph La Trobe.

Charles La Trobe was the first Superintendent of the Port Phillip District from 1839 to 1850 and first Lieutenant-Governor of the new colony of Victoria from 1851 to 1854.

He supervised the establishment of self-government, the public library, art gallery, a university, and the development of the gold fields.

Governor La Trobe is also famed for ensuring that a minimum of 20% of all land in Melbourne and its surrounding suburbs contain parkland. This old legislation has helped Melbourne to remain one of the great cities of the world and has contributed to La Trobe's Wetland conservation program.

La Trobe University Coat of Arms

La Trobe University's Armorial Bearings combine significant symbols that encapsulate its history, goals and pride in its Victorian genesis.

Australia is represented by the Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle, one of the world's largest eagles. Victoria is represented by the sprigs of heath, Victoria's floral emblem.

The open book refers to the University's commitment to learning. The scallop shells are part of the La Trobe family bearings and have been included to acknowledge the La Trobe name.

University motto
The French motto "Qui cherche trouve" (Whoever seeks shall find) is a modern version of the La Trobe family motto.

Today La Trobe is renowned for its academic excellence and research achievements.

Over 100,000 students have graduated from La Trobe University thus far and have gone on to achieve great things in all walks of life, giving La Trobe its well deserved reputation.
