- Establishing a local identity for a regional campus of a metropolitan university: Swinburne at Lilydale
- Weal, Steve
- In Victoria higher education is provided to non-metropolitan areas by distance education programs or by regional campuses of metropolitan universities. The Lilydale campus of Swinburne University of Technology, which is the focus of this paper, falls into the later category. In this chapter the author recounts many of the specific activities undertaken to engender and strengthen a regional identity for the campus, and details many systematic engagements with business, industry, government and community groups as part of this process. The transformation and acceptance of Lilydale as a 'University town' in a relatively short period suggests that the establishment of Swinburne at Lilydale has been extremely successful in terms of local and regional engagement.
