Office of the Vice-Chancellor and President


For over fifty years we have been leading the Pacific by making distinctive contributions in research, innovation, learning, teaching and community engagement. We have become a global brand, with uniRank placing us amongst the Top 50 universities in Oceania and top 9% internationally.

USP plays a dynamic role in the Pacific region and is underpinned by its unique cultural identities which are deeply rooted in our virtues – integrity, honesty, respect and accountability.  Preservation of these cultures is at the heart of USP in what we do and how we do it.

We have great ambitions and have aspirations to grow our brand so that we are globally recognized for our excellence. Our greatest strength is our people, who are dedicated, well qualified and are world class researchers devoted to providing the best education possible. We work to advance our teaching, curriculum, and campus culture to meet the educational needs and aspirations of students in a rapidly changing world.

We are student centered because we believe that when our students graduate they must become agents of development.  It is our responsibility to enrich the lives of students by providing opportunities and to ensure that they are able to make an impact on their communities.

USP is a comprehensive university with a dynamic role in the region.  We endeavor to work collaboratively with local, and regional stakeholders and partners whilst remaining open to global opportunities.

Through our website you will be able to view a wealth of information of what we have to offer.

Thank you,
