Australia’s first regional university
The vision of those who fought to establish Australia’s first regional university at Armidale in northern NSW came to fruition after years of work and development through numerous stages. The story begins with the election of David Henry Drummond in 1920 as representative of the Northern Tablelands in the NSW Legislative Assembly.
Drummond was a foundation member of the New State Movement, which believed in the potential of New England to become Australia’s seventh State – with its own educational institutions. His interest in education led to his appointment, in 1927, as Minister for Education in the newly-elected NSW Government.
Armidale Teachers’ College
One of Drummond’s first achievements as Minister was the establishment of a teachers’ college in Armidale – the first Australian college of its kind outside a capital city. When laying the foundation stone of Armidale Teachers’ College in 1929 he said the community was, in effect, laying the foundation for a future university.
