50 years of inspiring achievement and counting.
Flinders University has developed a remarkable record of achievement across an impressive range of endeavour.
Through the diverse efforts of an eclectic cohort of teachers, researchers and graduates, Flinders has exerted a profound and distinctive influence on society and in its various communities.

We look forward to your involvement and support as we continue in our pursuit of this ideal.
