UniSA was founded in January 1991 through the amalgamation of the South Australian Institute of Technology and the Magill, Salisbury and Underdale campuses of the South Australian College of Advanced Education. Under the University’s Act, its mission was ‘to preserve, extend and disseminate knowledge through teaching, research, scholarship and consultancy, and to provide educational programs that will enhance the diverse cultural life of the wider community’.


A faculty structure was adopted in 1992, and in 1993 UniSA established the Australian Technology Network (ATN) with Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Curtin University of Technology in Perth, RMIT University in Melbourne and the University of Technology, Sydney. In 1994, the first two research institutes – the Ian Wark Research Institute and the Institute for Telecommunications Research – were established, followed in 1996 by the Flexible Learning Centre, which played a major role in facilitating strategic directions fro improving teaching and learning.
