About Edith Cowan University
At ECU we are guided by our values of integrity, respect, rational inquiry and personal excellence. Our focus on teaching and research is inspired by engagement and partnerships with those in the many communities we were established to serve.
Established in 1991, ECU has grown rapidly into a vibrant contemporary university with consistent five star teaching quality, excellent student satisfaction and internationally recognised research.
ECU has been successful in widening participation and breaking down barriers that restrict entry to education through alternative entry pathways to higher education.
ECU is recognised as leading in equality in the workplace for women and is committed to inclusion of all genders so people feel enabled, and supported, to pursue careers in their chosen fields. We are removing barriers to gender equity by offering progressive workplace conditions, improving our policies and practices and organisational culture. We are particularly focussed on increasing the diversity of our workforce in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).
