3. Leading Research
In 2014 ACU launched a research intensification program. In the initial stage of the five-year strategy, the university established seven new research institutes aligned with four priority research areas: theology and philosophy, health; education; and the common good and social justice.
In 2015, ACU was named the most improved institution by the Australian Research Council in its national assessment of research quality, the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA). In the results, ACU increased its “excellence index” ranking from 35th to 21st. The university also achieved several scores of five, the highest score possible, in the ERA.
