Sandra McPhee AM, Chancellor

Southern Cross University is deeply connected with the regions we call home, with a distinctive mission that places students and communities at the centre of our future.

As we continue to navigate through COVID, we remain committed to developing a resilient, adaptive workforce well equipped to meet future challenges, seize opportunities and thrive. 

There has never been a more critical time for us to work in concert with local communities, government and industry to create the knowledge and capabilities needed in our regions, the nation and around the world.   

This collaboration is central to the purpose of Southern Cross University and one the University Council actively enables, while embracing our core values of collegiality and integrity. 

Thank you for visiting the University Council webpages, where you will find comprehensive information about the University's structure, governance and legal framework.

On behalf of the Council of the University, I welcome you to the Southern Cross University community.
