Picture of the National Security College building

As a joint initiative between the Commonwealth Government and The Australian National University (ANU), the National Security College (NSC) is unique, serving as a meeting place for policy, academia, industry and the wider community.

Led by Professor Rory Medcalf, the College combines the independent academic expertise and reputation of the ANU with special arrangements of trust, access and security cleared engagement with the Australian Government.

In an era of increased disruption and complexity, the work of the NSC is more important than ever.
