The ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS) is the largest of seven Colleges at the University.
The College was created in 2007 as part of the University's broad restructure to maintain its position in the top 20 of the world’s universities and the top-ranked university in the Asia-Pacific region.
The College intends to set national and international standards in research, education and community engagement across its three platforms: humanities, creative arts and social sciences.
The Mission of the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences is:
globally, to be recognised by its academic excellence, in both research and education, across the
humanities, creative arts and social sciences, while bringing its expertise to bear on key social,
cultural, and political problems facing the contemporary world;
nationally, in partnership with the public, the private sector, and government, to shape Australia as an innovative knowledge-based society; and
locally, to engage with, and enrich the community.
The mission of CASS drives all activities and is reflected in the following guiding principles:
CASS is committed to improving engagement with Indigenous Australians in line with the ANU Reconciliation Action Plan.
The college also supports the ANU Gender Institute which provides a focus for existing activity on issues of gender and sexuality and a catalyst to develop and deepen them.
