Group of Eight (Australian universities)
|Group of Eight|
The Group of Eight (Go8) is a coalition of leading Australian tertiary institutions, intensive in research and comprehensive in general and professional education. It was established informally as a network of vice-chancellors in 1994 and was formally incorporated in 1999.
The Go8 aims to enhance the contribution of its member universities to the nation’s social, economic, cultural and environmental well-being and prosperity and extend the contribution of its member universities to the generation and preservation of the world’s stock of knowledge.
All eight universities' primary campuses are based in the six largest Australian capital cities or the national capital in the case of ANU.
