ANU College of Asia & the Pacific

ANU College of Asia & the Pacific

The ANU College of Asia and the Pacific is one of the world’s leading centres for teaching, research and outreach on the region. Since the founding of the Australian National University in 1946, the College has driven Australia’s engagement and understanding of its neighbourhood. The work conducted here has established the University as a global centre of excellence in research, teaching and influence on Asia and the Pacific. Today, the College hosts the largest number of regional experts and specialist academic programs in the English-speaking world, and plays a vital role in informing public policy and Australia’s intellectual engagement with the societies, cultures and economies of Asia and the Pacific. The ANU Library also holds one of the best Asian collections in the world. Although the College remains unique for its regional focus, it also has an unwavering commitment to disciplinary strength, particularly in political science, economics, history, anthropology, law, archaeology and linguistics, with an enviable international standing across all these disciplines.
