Explore the Monash timeline
While our focus is squarely on the horizon, we use the spirit of our history to guide us. Founded in 1958, we’re named after Sir John Monash – an engineer, military leader, and public administrator who contributed to almost every level of Australian life. We’re guided by our motto, Ancora Imparo (“I am still learning”), which sums up his approach to life and our dedication to lifelong learning.
