People and Culture

Empower our staff to lead as part of a strong, values-led organisation.

Our 2020 commitment

We want to inspire staff to share Curtin’s vision of becoming a leading global university and to proudly work with us to achieve that goal.

To excel in teaching, research and engagement at a global level, we need to create opportunities for all of our staff – whatever their role or level – to develop their personal and professional leadership skills, to embrace change and innovation, to connect with industry and to continually strive to improve performance.

We will provide development and support services that will enable our people to flourish and we will demonstrate strong, values-driven leadership that builds trust across the University, modelling our values of integrity, respect, courage, excellence and impact.

Curtin is a large, culturally diverse university spread across multiple campuses and countries, with many others joining us online. To connect us across these diverse locations, we will provide work and study environments that are inclusive and collaborative.

Over the next four years, we will continue to improve employment experiences and outcomes for all staff, built on our already well-embedded principles of fairness and respect; in particular, we will aim to markedly improve gender equity and Indigenous inclusion.

Curtin is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all staff and partners.
