Newman College, the University of Melbourne

Newman College is a Roman Catholic co-educational residential college affiliated with the University of Melbourne. Its purpose is to nourish the mind, heart; imagination and soul so that its members can become effective leaders in the community, mature in faith and committed to justice.
