We became part of the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education in late 2014.
We aim to develop more effective governance, leadership and management capacity in tertiary sector institutions, so that institutions may fulfil their missions more successfully.
To be recognised nationally and internationally as a leading centre of teaching and research excellence for the enhancement of tertiary education leadership and management.
Under the leadership of its Foundation Director, Professor V. Lynn Meek, the LH Martin Institute became known as the provider of choice for tailored and contextualised management and leadership programs for the tertiary education sector, underpinned by a strong research base.
It is my pleasure and challenge to now take the Institute to the next level through reaching out to an even larger and more diverse audience, within and outside Australia, to enable them to more effectively deal with the continuous pressures for change and innovation that are so pertinent to our sector.
