- To provide opportunities for students to develop the skills, techniques and personal attributes essential for successful working lives.

- To support students to understand the local, regional and global context of Animal Management and, for those students with a global outlook, to aspire to international career pathways.

- To provide students with opportunities to address contemporary issues facing the industry, and society at large; with particular emphasis on sustainability and the environment, recognising the role that Animal Management plays in addressing these issues.
