VU announces million dollar investment in women’s sport by Dr Susan Alberti AC

Dr Susan Alberti AC has invested one million dollars in establishing The Susan Alberti Women in Sport Chair. Victoria University’s Professor Clare Hanlon, renowned for her commitment to breaking down barriers and enhancing participation and opportunities for women in sport, has been appointed Chair.

The announcement coincides with the launch of the Victoria University Sports Strategy: From Grassroots to Elite. Victoria University (VU) is one of Australia’s leading sport universities with an international reputation in sport teaching, research, industry engagement and partnership and commercialisation. It is ranked number 12 on the influential Shanghai Global Rankings of Sport Science Schools and Departments.

“Everyone knows I’m passionate about sport as a way for women to make our community more cohesive and improve health outcomes. My donation will establish a professional Chair and research program in Women in Sport – building on the knowledge and expertise that has made VU renowned for sports science and physical activity,” said Dr Alberti.

“Together, Dr Alberti (Victorian Honour Roll of Women 2014) and Professor Hanlon, who was inducted into the Victorian Honour Roll of Women in 2018, are champions of change,” said Professor Peter Dawkins (AO), Vice-Chancellor and President of Victoria University.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
