SCU History

Our story

1994 - 2014 was an exciting time for Southern Cross University as it evolved from what was a Teachers College, in the 1970s, into a fully-fledged University with its own identity in 1994.

As part of our 20-year celebrations, we developed a series of stories, historical information and personal recollections. These include a condensed Brief History of SCU from Teachers College to University. We've also included some expanded descriptions of distinct five-year periods describing the University's history over two decades: 1994 – 1998, 1999 – 2003, 2004 – 2008 and 2009 – 2013.

We've sourced stories from graduates, staff and local organisations, and there is a list of Chancellors and Vice Chancellors who have served the University and been instrumental in shaping the direction of the University. Also included is a history of research at SCU and a history of international students at SCU.
