Announcement of Partnership with the Association of Ukrainians in Victoria

The Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne are delighted to announce the recent formation of a partnership with the Association of Ukrainians in Victoria (AUV).

The AUV is a not-for-profit organisation that has served the Ukrainian community in Victoria for more than seventy years. A relationship with the AUV aligns with the University’s strategy to benefit society through the transformative impact of education and research. The collaboration enhances the University’s capacity to work with communities and to embrace our place in Australia and the world, partnering in the future of Melbourne as a thriving and sustainable global city.

We are currently working together on our first collaboration together which will culminate in the support of an academic position in Ukrainian Studies within the Faculty’s School of Historical and Philosophical Studies.

We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with AUV that will enrich our curriculum and allow students to engage in Ukrainian Studies. There will also be many more opportunities for collaboration as our relationship grows, including research, joint programming, cultural advocacy and the development and support of academic expertise.
