Their locations have a profound influence on their teaching and academic programs, from business degrees that examine ecological tourism to marine science that is helping to regenerate the reef and engineering to make their urban environments smarter and more sustainable. They celebrate their cultural diversity with a festival every year because it is diversity that makes them bold, and pushes them to challenge the status quo.
