Committed to Learning

A History of Education at the University of Melbourne

Juliet Flesch
Consistently ranking in the top five educational faculties in the world, the Melbourne Graduate School of Education has achieved a status few would have predicted. This history of the first hundred and ten years of the discipline of Education at the University of Melbourne reflects the extraordinary change in the esteem in which it has been held, in the university, Australia and the world.

The very idea of Education as a suitable course of study at a university was initially opposed, and until recently the standing of this faculty compared to other professional faculties such as Law or Medicine has been less than equal. But since the University was revitalised and reorganised under the Melbourne Model in 2008, its reputation has risen steadily.

Committed to Learning brings to life those whose vision and hard work since its early beginning have brought such success to this faculty.
