Support our Dookie Fund and help students become highly skilled agricultural specialists.
We aspire to be at the forefront of research and innovation in agricultural practice and food production – not just in Australia, but across the world. We aim to be a destination of choice for thought leaders to converge and collaborate on teaching and research. And we aim to attract the very best staff and students to work, study and train with us.
Excellence begets excellence. That’s why we’ve made a commitment to reinvigorate the Dookie campus. Our vision is a campus that will nurture the next generation of farm and food entrepreneurs and industry leaders – a place where researchers and students engage directly with agricultural communities, industry stakeholders, government, farmers and private companies to co-develop solutions.
So far, we’ve installed a robotic dairy and refurbished Swinburne Hall as a teaching and learning centre. Over the next five years, with your help, Dookie will be completely transformed. Our staff and student accommodation will be modernised, and our farm and research infrastructure will be upgraded. We’ll build new animal accommodation and new glasshouses, and invest in state-of-the-art laboratories.
