On 19 June 2018, the Councils of the University of Adelaide and University of South Australia endorsed a six-month period of collaboration to explore the merits of a merger, to create a new, leading Australian university.

The universities have agreed to explore whether a merged university would generate a stronger institution that has the potential to deliver greater outcomes for the State of South Australia, and for its students, graduates and partners.

Both universities have committed to undertaking extensive consultations with staff, students and alumni, as well as business, industry, government and members of the community.

Full details of the consultation process will be announced over the coming weeks, with public submissions to be called for in the period August-September 2018. An independent website will facilitate feedback and submissions.

Initial feedback can be emailed to:  ViceChancellor@unisa.edu.au
