History[ edit ]

The founders of the Adelaide University
(1875 engraving, Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers

Mitchell Building, University of Adelaide (with man and penny farthing bicycle) & the Mortlock Library, North Terrace, Adelaide (looking West), 1879–1886

The University of Adelaide was established on 6 November 1874 after a £20,000 donation by grazier and copper miner Walter Watson Hughes , along with support and donations from Thomas Elder . [4]

The first Chancellor was Sir Richard Hanson and the first vice-chancellor was Augustus Short . The first degree offered was the Bachelor of Arts and the university started teaching in March 1876. John Davidson was the first Hughes professor of English literature and mental and moral philosophy. [5]

The University has a long history of championing the rights of women in higher education. It was the second University in the English-speaking world (after the University of London, 1878) to admit women on equal terms with men (1881), though women studied alongside men from the commencement of classes in 1876, and were equally eligible for all academic prizes and honours. Its first female graduate was Edith Emily Dornwell , who was also the first person in Australia to receive the degree of Bachelor of Science (BSc., 1885). The university also graduated Australia’s first female surgeon Laura Fowler (MB, 1891). Ruby Davy (B. Mus., 1907; D. Mus., 1918) was the first Australian woman to receive a doctorate in music. [6] The University was also the first to elect a woman to a University Council in Australia, Helen Mayo (MBBS, 1902), in 1914. [7]

The great hall of the University, Bonython Hall , was built in 1936 following a donation from the owner of The Advertiser newspaper, Sir John Langdon Bonython , who left £40,000 for a Great Hall for the University. [8]

Modern era[ edit ]

On 2 July 2010, the University officially implemented its “Smoke-Free Policy”. [9] This move was the culmination of an anti-smoking agenda headed by Professor Konrad Jamrozik [10] and subsequently, following Jamrozik’s death, the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Professor Justin Beilby. [9] Security have the right to eject people smoking within the University buildings and also fine people smoking in the gardens or walkways. It is the first higher education institution in South Australia to institute a smoke-free policy. [9] The North Terrace campus has been smoke-free since July 2010, it was planned that the Waite and Roseworthy campuses would be smoke-free by 2011, and the University’s residential facilities have also been made smoke-free. [9]

In June 2018, University of Adelaide and University of South Australia began discussions regarding the possibility of a merger. The proposition was described as the formation of a “super uni” by Steven Marshall and Simon Birmingham , [11] [12] but the merger was called off in October 2018. [13]

Campuses[ edit ]

North Terrace[ edit ]

Mitchell Building from front, 2008.

The main campus of the University is on North Terrace . It is bordered by the Art Gallery of South Australia , the State Library of South Australia , the South Australian Museum and the “City East” campus of the University of South Australia . The Adelaide University Medical and Dental Schools were located across Frome Road , behind the old Royal Adelaide Hospital . The hospital moved and so have the schools.

The vast majority of students and staff of the University are based at the North Terrace campus, where the majority of courses are taught and schools are based. The central administration of the University and the main library, the Barr Smith Library , are both located on this campus. While many other universities have law and business schools or satellite campuses within the central business district, the University of Adelaide is unique among Australian sandstone universities for having its main presence adjacent to the main business and shopping precinct.

Bonython Hall , (the great hall of the University), the Mitchell Building, the Elder Hall , the Napier building and the Ligertwood building, form the North Terrace street frontage of the campus. Bonython Hall is one of the many historic and heritage listed buildings located at the North Terrace campus. Others include the Mitchell Building, Elder Hall, and the Reading Room of the Barr Smith Library .

In 2016, the university commenced work on a $1 billion, 20-year “Masterplan” for its three campuses. The masterplan envisages new facilities for all Schools, and greatly enhanced campus amenities for students, with a focus on pedestrians and cyclists, providing better, safer pathways through the campus, and eliminating vehicle traffic where possible. At North Terrace, the Schulz building will be repurposed as an on-campus residential college, with accommodation, and recreational facilities including a gym. [14] This major transformation of the university’s physical presence across all campuses comes in conjunction with the multimillion-dollar renewal and redevelopment of the old Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) site on North Terrace. In 2016, the RAH moved to the West end of North Terrace, in the $4 billion South Australian Health and Biomedical Precinct (SAHBP), at which the University of Adelaide also has a physical presence in the form of the Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences Building. [15]

National Wine Centre[ edit ]

Main article: National Wine Centre of Australia

Located in the Adelaide Park Lands at the eastern end of North Terrace, the Wine Centre offers some of the university’s oenology courses. Opened in 2001, the facility also hosts public exhibitions about winemaking and its industry in South Australia . [16] It contains an interactive permanent exhibition of winemaking , introducing visitors to the technology, varieties and styles of wine. It also has a wine tasting area, giving visitors the opportunity to taste and compare wines from different areas of Australia.

The Wine Centre is situated at the eastern end of North Terrace, Adelaide in the eastern parklands and adjacent to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens . The building, designed by Cox Grieve Gillett, uses building materials to reflect items used in making wine. [17]

Waite[ edit ]

The main building at the Waite Research Institute.

The Waite campus has a strong focus on agricultural science , plant breeding and biotechnology . A number of other organisations are colocated in the Waite Research Precinct , including the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), and the Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics (ACPFG). The School of Agriculture, Food and Wine is based on the Waite campus and the campus contains components of the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences. It is adjacent to the Urrbrae Agricultural High School .

It is situated in Adelaide’s south-eastern foothills, in the suburb of Urrbrae on 174 hectares (430 acres). A large amount of the land was donated in 1924 by the pastoralist Peter Waite . A large amount of money was donated by Rosina and John , the widow and son of William Tennant Mortlock . These donations were initially used to establish the Peter Waite Institute of Agricultural Research (first Director A. E. V. Richardson ), [18] which later became the Waite campus.

A Soil Research Centre was founded in 1929 with a donation of £10,000 from Harold Darling of J. Darling and Son, grain merchants. [19]

In 2004, Premier Mike Rann opened the multimillion-dollar Plant Genomics Centre at the Waite Campus. [20] Then in 2010 Premier Rann opened The Plant Accelerator, a $30 million research facility – the largest and most advanced of its kind in the world. [21]

Malcolm Oades was the director from November 1996 to 2001.

Roseworthy[ edit ]

Main article: Roseworthy College

Located north of the city, the Roseworthy campus comprises 16 km2 of farmland and is a large centre for agricultural research . It was the first agricultural college in Australia, established in 1883. Other organisations linked to the campus include SARDI and the Murray TAFE .

In 1991, the College merged with the University of Adelaide and became the University’s Roseworthy Campus, part of the Faculty of Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences. The merger would see teaching and research in oenology and viticulture transferred to the University’s Waite Campus, along with the bulk of its work in plant breeding. [22] Before the degree in oenology was transferred to Waite Campus, Roseworthy produced a number of highly regarded and awarded winemakers and wine critics. [23]

From the mid-1990s, the major focus of the campus turned to dryland agriculture, natural resource management and animal production. The campus is also now home to South Australia’s first pre-service Veterinary Science training program, which commenced in purpose-built facilities in 2010. In 2013, the focus on veterinary science was expanded with the opening of the Equine Health and Performance Centre, a state-of-the-art facility for equine surgery, sports medicine, internal medicine and reproduction. [24]

Thebarton[ edit ]

Stirling Street entrance to the University of Adelaide’s Thebarton Campus

The Thebarton campus, which is also known as Adelaide University Research Park, is the base of the University’s Office of Industry Liaison. The campus works in conjunction with the University’s commercial partners. Commercial enterprises at Thebarton campus include businesses involved in materials engineering, biotechnology, environmental services, information technology, industrial design, laser/optics technology, health products, engineering services, radar systems, telecommunications and petroleum services. The campus also provides much of the infrastructure for the Graduate Entrepreneurial Program which allows recent graduates to start businesses with support from the University. The flames for the recent Sydney and Athens Olympic Games were developed at the Thebarton campus by the TEC group. [25]

Singapore[ edit ]

The Singapore presence, located at the Ngee Ann Academy (formerly known as Ngee Ann – Adelaide Education Centre (NAAEC)), [3] is the University of Adelaide’s first overseas centre. It is a joint venture with the Ngee Ann Kongsi foundation. [26] [27]

The educational facility combines under-graduate and post-graduate academic programs with applied executive and professional development courses. Courses are taught at the Teochew Building on Tank Road in the city centre. The Ngee Ann – Adelaide Education Centre also serves as a platform for potential research collaboration in strategically important areas for both Australia and Singapore. Public lectures in the form of “3rd Tuesday: Where Great Minds Come Together”, are presented by University of Adelaide professors on a regular basis.[ citation needed ]

The University is divided into five faculties, with various constituent schools:

  • Faculty of Engineering, Computer & Mathematical Sciences: Australian School of Petroleum ; School of Chemical Engineering; School of Civil, Environmental & Mining Engineering; School of Computer Science; School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering; School of Mathematical Sciences; and, School of Mechanical Engineering.
  • Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences: University of Adelaide School of Dentistry ; School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Public Health, School of Psychology
  • Faculty of Arts: Elder Conservatorium of Music ; School of Humanities; School of Education; and, School of Social Sciences
  • Faculty of the Professions: School of Architecture, and Built Environment ; Adelaide Business School; School of Economics; and, Adelaide Law School .
  • Faculty of Sciences: School of Agriculture, Food, and Wine; School of Physical Sciences; School of Biological Sciences; School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences.

The University has a long history of indigenous education, and established its first formal courses in the Centre for Aboriginal Studies in Music (CASM) in 1972. The recruitment, administration and support of indigenous students, as well as overseeing the Indigenous Employment Strategy and delivering Foundation Studies Programs, is conducted by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education: Wilto Yerlo in the Division of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President (Academic).[ citation needed ]

The University currently enrolls in excess of 27,300 students, including over 7,400 international students (2015) from more than 100 countries. Adelaide University has approximately 130,000 Alumni worldwide, along with 400 student exchange agreements.[ citation needed ]

Residential colleges[ edit ]

The University of Adelaide, unlike most universities, did not set any land aside on its North Terrace campus for student accommodation, due mainly to an ideological opposition to the culture of live-in students, but also influenced by the small size of the original campus. [28] However, demand for residential college accommodation led to the establishment of private colleges affiliated to the University. St. Mark’s College was founded by the Anglican Church (then called the Church of England) in 1925, Aquinas College in 1950 by the Catholic Church, Lincoln College in 1952 by the Methodist Church , and later St Ann’s College , Kathleen Lumley College and Australian Lutheran College . All are located within close walking distance of the University, across the River Torrens in North Adelaide . In addition to providing accommodation and meals for local, interstate and international students, each college organises academic support, social activities and sporting opportunities for its members.

Governance[ edit ]

In 2018, Peter Rathjen commences his tenure as Vice Chancellor, taking over from Warren Bebbington . Rathjen is a Rhodes Scholar, a recipient of the R.A. Fisher Prize for genetics and the Morton Prize for biochemistry, and was the founding member of the Australian Centre of Excellence for Biotechnology. He is a world-renowned stem cell researcher, whose work in gene shearing formed the foundations for genetic engineering . [29]

Academic profile[ edit ]

Commercialisation[ edit ]

The University of Adelaide has capitalised on opportunities to commercialise its research. The university has the highest volume of commercial research agreements of all Australian universities. It engages in extensive contract research and collaborative work in conjunction with local and international companies, as well as federal, state and local governments. This activity is managed by the university’s commercial development company, Adelaide Research & Innovation Pty Ltd (ARI). [30]

Some examples of recent influences to the university’s teaching and research priorities are the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG; previously the Defence Science and Technology Organisation , or DSTO) in Adelaide’s northern suburbs to which the university provides many psychology, physics, engineering, and IT graduates; and the growth in South Australia’s wine industry, which is supported by the Waite and National Wine Centre campuses producing oenology and agriculture/ viticulture graduates.

In addition, the university participates in the Auto-ID Labs .

Lectures[ edit ]

The University hosts a number of lecture series, including the Joseph Fisher Lecture in Commerce, established in 1903 following a donation by politician and newspaper proprietor Joseph Fisher of £1000 to the University “for the purpose of promoting the study of commerce”. The Gavin David Young Lectures in Philosophy began in 1956, owing their existence to a bequest made by Jessie Frances Raven, in memory of her father, for “the promotion, advancement, teaching and diffusion of the study of philosophy…”. [31] The University also presents the James Crawford Biennial Lecture Series on International Law, named for James Richard Crawford SC , a graduate of the University who went on to be Dean of Law at the University of Sydney and subsequently Whewell Professor of International Law at the University of Cambridge . Crawford delivered the first lecture in 2004. The University is one of a number of institutions to have established an Edward Said Memorial Lecture . [32] The first in this series was given in 2005.

Research[ edit ]

The University of Adelaide is one of the most research-intensive universities in Australia, securing over $180 million in research funding annually. [33] Its researchers are active in both basic and commercially oriented research across a broad range of fields including agriculture, psychology, health sciences, and engineering. [30]

Research strengths include Agriculture, Environment, Mineral & Energy Resources, Social Innovation, Health & Biomedical Sciences, and Sensing & Computation.[ citation needed ]

The University is a member of Academic Consortium 21, [34] an association of 20 research intensive universities, mainly in Oceania, though with members from the USA and Europe. The University holds the Presidency of AC 21 for the period 2011–2013 as host the biennial AC21 International Forum in June 2012.

The Centre for Automotive Safety Research (CASR) based at the University of Adelaide was founded in 1973 as the Road Accident Research Unit and is an internationally recognised centre of research on road safety and injury control.[ citation needed ]
