FROM SMALL VICTORIES TO BIG MOVES - FOLLOW US TO CO-CREATE THE VISION FOR PARKVILLE
The Campus Development Framework (CDF) will launch the vision for the Parkville campus with principles and values that are drawn from the broad community who use the campus on a regular basis. People who study, work or live near the campus all have a role to play, and so do those who connect with the campus as alumni or visitors.
Thank you for your participation in the TellUs survey and associated events during the first two weeks of October. Your ideas, comments and notes have informed the development of a series of draft statements - the core values and guiding principles that will inform the CDF.

OUR CAMPUS IN THE 21st CENTURY
Our Campus in the 21st century (OC21) was developed by the University community in a series of workshops that explored the qualities wanted across all campuses and precincts. It is the formal response to the University of Melbourne’s strategic plan Growing Esteem and is integral to how the University will plan for the future, and to developing high-quality campus-based experiences for diverse communities.
The Campus Development Framework (CDF Phase 1) will launch the vision for the campus with principles and values that are drawn from the broad community who use the campus on a regular basis. The CDF will be the blueprint that guides the planning, design, and development of the Parkville campus.
TECHNOLOGY AND TRADITION
To embrace the best of both worlds, our events and activities revere the unique setting and traditions of the Parkville Campus through our sustainability, and Billibellary’s walks which will take you through the grounds with a new perspective. OurCampus TellUs will use technology in creative ways to connect with participants and to support new ways of interacting with the Campus.
SYNERGY AND INNOVATION
For Our Campus TellUs it means that we collaborate with the experts of experience to tap into the potential of the people and space. Discussions will prompt participants to think creatively on how campus systems can be better utilized on an ecological, social and technological level for ultimate synchronicity. Similarly, harnessing the power of the mind and body, the Brain Energiser Breakfast fuels your body and nourishes your mind with mindfulness activities to prepare participants for their day.
A culture of inclusion
We understand people connect with the campus in different ways, Our Campus TellUs encourages communities from all sides of the university to contribute. It’s about collective ideas for what Our Campus could be, what experiences are missing, what features could improve the way you learn or work, or how the campus be more aligned with the things that are important to you. Our engagement approach encourages participation from groups and individuals from all walks to ensure involvement is well represented.
