                      Introduction of women's studies major
                      Deakin introduces the inter-university women’s studies major, spearheaded by Dr Robyn Rowland and colleagues in the Faculty of Humanities. In the face of resistance across the higher education sector to the idea of women’s studies, it is testament to the determination of the academics to establish a full major in the field.

                      Deakin University Press was established to market the University’s learning materials produced as standalone volumes, which were taken up by many other universities’ courses. By the mid-1980s Deakin was the largest educational publisher in the country.

                      Named after Australia's second Prime Minister (Alfred Deakin), Deakin was formally established in 1974 as one of the first universities in the country to specialise in distance education, and the first to be established in regional Victoria.

                      A key element of the Deakin University Act was that the University was not only to be Victoria’s fourth university with the usual mandate to teach and research in the state, but was also granted the specific mandate to teach nationally using distance education, differentiating Deakin from all other Australian universities.
