hello there thought i should start off the talk page. hi!!!

How can ACU be a public university when it is owned by a private company? matturn 06:28, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

It is a public university in that its funding comes from the federal government. There are 38 public universities in Australa of which ACU is one. There are currently two private universities in Australia: Notre Dame and Bond universities. Taken from ACU's website: "ACU National is the Australian Catholic University, a public university funded by the Australian Government and open to students and staff of all beliefs" [[1]].

Does not Notre Dame also get a lot of government funding? Bond is certainly eligible to get government funding. All three are owned by non-profit companies. matturn 06:47, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

To be honest with you I have no idea why it is the way it is. I dont know whether you can say that ACU is actually "owned" by a private company I believe it may just be a part of the legal requirements for a university. It is also spread over three states and a territoty. Most universities (I think) in Australia are established by state law, perhaps the multi-state nature of ACU made the formation of a private company a legal requirement. The fact remains though that ACU is a public university. Soundabuser 14:58, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

"Fact remains"? How can a fact remain without proof, especially when all evidence points to the contrary? It being a multi-state institution is of no relevance, it's previous single state institutions were private, and USQ, Charles Sturt and UNSW all operate over state lines. Australian public universities are all owned by state or territories, with the exception of the federal ANU. Bond, Notre Dame and ACU are owned by privately controlled non-profit companies. matturn 10:04, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

To be honest i have found ACU to be one of the most incompetent universitieis on earth,.

Have you ever been to VicUni?

Image:Aculogo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
