28 28 Monash University has not paid sufficient attention to the regional and expertise-related strengths of its campuses – especially Its non-Clayton campuses. Clayton – is close to the hub of Victoria’s manufacturing region Gippsland - is in the heart of the LaTrobe Valley Peninsula – well located to study the health impacts of ageing and social disadvantage Not just a Cross–Disciplinary Approach; a Cross-Campus one
