Leadership at RMIT

We are a strong community of leaders who work together to shape the future of RMIT, its students and the communities in which we live and work.

At RMIT we value leadership, our leaders are fundamental to the University’s success and are the stewards of shaping and driving our culture.

To achieve the University's Strategic Plan and create a student-centric culture our leaders need to be curious, present, accountable, authentic and gutsy.

Leadership is not a static practice, but is better defined as a journey. While each member of the leadership community begins this journey at different stages, we are all unified by RMIT’s leadership practice.

University Values

Our values define our behaviour, and as leaders our behavior will influence our culture and the way we work together.

Our leaders embody and exemplify the six RMIT Values: passion, courage, imagination, impact, inclusion and agility.


We understand industry trends and the market in which we operate and are passionate about creating transformative student experiences which have an impact.


We are courageous in the decisions we make to deliver on the long-term performance of the University. We deliver on our promises and hold ourselves and others to account.


We empower our staff and students to try new things and support them to use their imagination in the ways they solve complex problems.


We collaborate with our people by leading, inspiring, and building capability that amplifies our impact.


We create an inclusive environment that respects and embraces individual difference and actively harness diversity of thought.


We are optimistic and agile in our response to change and lead our people through ambiguity and challenge to maximise opportunities.
