Two worlds are now essential to the security and growth of university museums in Australia: the campus and the city. Sue-Anne Wallace explains how this relationship took shape and what it might augur for the future. She was recently course director of the Museum Leadership Programme at the Melbourne Business School, University of Melbourne, and until July 1999 director of Museum Education and Curatorial Programmes at the Museum of Contemporary Art, and acting director of the museum since late 1998. She has been president of Museums Australia since 1996, and sits on a number of boards and committees associated with universities and the cultural sector, including the Australian Indigenous Cultural Network and the Constitutional Centenary Foundation, in which role she has been working to have cultural issues considered in the Australian debate on the constitution and the republic.
