The University of Notre Dame Australia hasmoved closer to establishing a campus inSydney.In August, Prime Minister John Howardexpressed support and approval of thecampus.The proposed Sydney campus will beestablished on two sites – the historic StBenedict’s church and school in Broadway,Chippendale and the Sacred Heart parishsite in Oxford Street, Darlinghurst, oppositeSt Vincent’s Hospital.The Federal Government will support thisnew university development with anallocation of 60 Commonwealth supportedcommencing HECS places in medicine, 60commencing HECS places in nursing, and80 commencing HECS places in teaching.It will also provide a capital contribution of$4m to help meet the costs of the refurbish-ment and development of the facilities onthe Broadway and Darlinghurst sites.The University of Notre Dame Australia’sVice Chancellor Dr Peter Tannock welcomedthe Government’s support.He said the Archdiocese of Sydney wasmaking the two sites available to supportthis important new development inCatholic higher education in Australia.“The Archdiocese of Sydney will becontributing more than $20m to theproject in the form of the value ofexisting land and buildings, and $5m indirect cash support,” he said.The Sydney campus would open in 2006with courses in law, business, teaching,and nursing.“In 2007 we will seek to establish a MedicalSchool based on the Darlinghurst site, whichwill service the long-term needs of Catholichospitals and health care services in southeastern Australia, including Sydney, Brisbane,Melbourne, and the regional Catholichospital and health care system in NewSouth Wales and Victoria,” Dr Tannock said.

As we move into the last quarter of 2004, Ican report to the readers of In Principio that2004 has been another busy and productiveyear. The University’s overall enrolmentgrew by another 25 per cent, with demandbeing experienced in all Colleges of theUniversity at both undergraduate andpostgraduate levels. This is the fourthyear in a row that our enrolments havegrown substantially. We now have about4,000 students enrolled on our Fremantleand Broome Campuses. A far cry from thesmall beginnings of only a few years ago!There are many reasons for this sub-stantial growth but, I believe, the mostimportant is simply the recognition by avery competitive market place, that whatwe are offering is very good Catholicuniversity education at a reasonable price.Our competitive position continues to bereflected in the published outcomes of thesurveys of graduates covering all universitiesin Australia. In the recently published ‘GoodUniversities Guide 2005’, Notre Dame wasgiven a five star rating for the educationalexperience of its graduates. This ratingreflects how graduates judged theircourses for overall satisfaction, teachingquality, and the acquisition of generic skills.Importantly, we also rated four stars on‘getting a job’, and three stars on ‘graduatestarting salary’ which put us equal to, orahead, of all the public universities inWestern Australia. In the overall ratings,Notre Dame received four, five-star ratings,equal to or better than any other universityin Western Australia. Well done to ourdedicated, hard working, and deeplycommitted staff!2004 has also been a year of very substantialcommitments by the University in thedevelopment of two major new ‘projects’:our new School of Medicine, due to openearly in 2005 and, our Sydney Campus,due to open early in 2006.The School of Medicine is a very challeng-ing project, and one which will bring muchexcitement and diversity to Notre Dame,particularly in the health area. We haveassembled an excellent team of full-time,part-time, and sessional staff, who will bebased in the beautiful and historic buildingbeing developed in Henry Street, Fremantle.A feature of this new School is the partner-ship that we have developed with CurtinUniversity. Curtin will supply the bio-medicalscience education to Notre Dame’s medicalstudents. Curtin is an excellent institution,and we believe that giving our medicalstudents the opportunity to undertakestudies in such areas as anatomy, bio-chemistry, physiology, pharmacology, etc onthe Curtin Campus will be an importantvalue-adding experience for them. We arevery pleased with this long-term partner-ship, and believe that both Universitieswill benefit greatly from the relationship.This School, the first private, Catholicmedical school in Australia, is a ground-breaking exercise. It should do much forthe advancement of health care andmedical education in Western Australia.As part of the resourcing of this new School,the University has launched a capital appealunder the chairmanship of Michael Chaney,Chief Executive Officer of Wesfarmers. Weare seeking donations, large and small, tohelp us fund the building and equippingof the School and the early developmental

costs. Any contributions which In Principioreaders would be prepared to make to thisproject would be deeply appreciated by us.The second major project, which has beenthe subject of considerable media attention,is the development of Notre Dame’sCampus in Sydney. This Campus will openin February 2006.It is a very challenging and very excitingproject which will do much for Notre Dameas a whole. We anticipate Fremantle stu-dents being given the opportunity to studyin Sydney and, vice versa. We also believethat the Sydney Campus will be very appeal-ing to international students, particularlyour US partners. The leaders of the Uni-versity of Notre Dame in the United Stateshave expressed great enthusiasm for it.Finally, I would like to mention the develop-ment of our Broome Campus.  We arebuilding a new library on the Campus andundertaking an extensive and relatedcapital development program to bringthe facilities there up to the same level asthose in Fremantle.  We are also reviewingthe curriculum and will be putting inplace some important changes that willunderpin the Campus for the long-term.I am very confident about Broome and itsplace in the overall Notre Dame spectrum.We have had strong support for theBroome Campus from Bishop ChrisSaunders, who is a Board member and,through her leadership, Professor JenniferNicol, the Provost of the University.
