History

Deakin University is a commissioned Victorian university. Its establishment was the result of the efforts of the the Fourth University Commission which was created by the State Government of Victoria in 1973 to establish Victoria's fourth university in regional Victoria. Three locations at Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong were considered. Capital Melbourne Government Const. ... 1973 (MCMLXXIII) was a common year starting on Monday. ...

In its report on 14 December 1973, the Federal Government's Australian Universities Commission recommended that a university be established at Geelong. This led to the establishment of Deakin University as a university in 1974, by an Act of Parliament referred to as the DEAKIN UNIVERSITY ACT 1974. Act No. 8610/1974.[2][3] Ballarat and Bendigo became independent Colleges of Advanced Education. December 14 is the 348th day of the year (349th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar. ... 1973 (MCMLXXIII) was a common year starting on Monday. ... 1974 (MCMLXXIV) was a common year starting on Tuesday. ...


The three other commissioned Victorian universities that preceded Deakin University were: The University of Melbourne (1853), Monash University (1958), and LaTrobe University (1964).

Upon establishment, Deakin absorbed the Geelong campus of the then State College of Victoria and adopted several of the more academic subject areas of the independent Gordon Institute of Technology (now the Gordon Institute of TAFE), which began concentrating on vocational education. Deakin enrolled its first students at its Waurn Ponds campus in 1977. The Gordon Institute of TAFE is the TAFE institute servicing Geelong, Victoria. ... For the album by Ash, see 1977 (album). ...


Deakin remained a single campus university for approximately fifteen years until the Federal Government's Dawkins Revolution of higher education in the late 1980s came into effect. As a result, Deakin became a larger university by merging with the Warrnambool Institute of Advanced Education in August 1990 and Victoria College, Melbourne in December 1991. The Dawkins Revolution was a series of Australian tertiary education reforms instituted by the then Labor Education Minister (1987-92) John Dawkins. ...

In the 1980s and early 1990s, debate ensued in Geelong about the fate of the city's historic waterfront woolstores, which were dilapidated amidst an area which was undergoing major development. Some buildings were demolished despite a community outcry, and the fate of the remaining buildings was unclear until Deakin University acquired the site for a sixth campus. Major renovations took place over several years, and in 1997, the Woolstores campus (now the Geelong Waterfront campus) opened. The 1980s refers to the years of 1980 to 1989. ... For the band, see 1990s (band). ... 1997 (MCMXCVII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


The result of the developments created a large multi-campus university spanning 300 kilometres covering six campuses in the cities of Melbourne (Burwood, Rusden (Clayton) and Toorak), Geelong (Waurn Ponds and Geelong Waterfront) and Warrnambool.

Deakin remained a single campus university for approximately fifteen years until the Federal Government's Dawkins Revolution of higher education in the late 1980s came into effect.
As a result, Deakin became a larger university by merging with the Warrnambool Institute of Advanced Education in August 1990 and Victoria College, Melbourne in December 1991.
The largest campus of the university is in Melbourne's eastern suburb of Burwood, on Burwood Highway.
