Former US President Bill Clinton has officially launched the private Torrens University, which accepted its first students this year.

 

Torrens

 

Clinton is the Honorary Chancellor of the global Laureate Universities International, to which Torrens belongs.

Clinton told a gathering in Adelaide:

We know that networks of co-operation work better than geniuses acting alone or groups bent on destroying each other. You respect and take advantage of differences while believing that your common humanity matters more. The future of the 21st century, despite all these problems, should be the most interesting and peaceful in history.

Torrens University is the first private university to have been opened in Australia in more than 20 years.

Laureate generates annual revenue of more than $US4 billion ($4.2 billion) from its operations in 29 countries including Mexico, Spain, Peru, Malaysia and the US.

Torrens University began delivering courses in Australia earlier this year from its Adelaide CBD headquarters and is one of three Australian-based institutions owned by Laureate.

It specialises in commerce, business, public  health and project management.

The other two are the Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School in NSW and THINK Education, which runs eight private colleges on the eastern seaboard.
