Australian Catholic University opened on 1 January 1991 following the amalgamation of four Catholic tertiary institutions in eastern Australia including McAuley College, Queensland. These institutions had their origins in the mid-nineteenth century, when religious orders and institutes became involved in preparing teachers for Catholic schools and, later, nurses for Catholic hospitals. Through a series of amalgamations, relocations, transfers of responsibilities and diocesan initiatives, more than 20 historical entities have contributed to the creation of the university.
