Community conversations at the heart of alumni events

Hundreds of graduates from our alumni community have attended receptions recently.

The very first West Coast Alumni & Friends event was held in Queenstown on Thursday, 11 April.

The long-term objective of this new series is to foster a ‘community of learning’ that contributes to the region’s cultural, social and economic prosperity.

A School of Engineering 1969 – 1972 reunion was also held at Sandy Bay the following day, with alumnus Graeme Hunt the driving force behind the activities.

This reunion marked fifty years since several alumni commenced their studies in this field, and more than 100 years of engineering at the University.

The 40+ Club Lunch in Hobart brought together Alumni who graduated 40 or more years ago to celebrate their ongoing connection with the institution.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Rufus Black engaged in conversation about the University’s role in positively shaping the State’s future to foster more inclusive, prosperous and sustainable outcomes.

This theme was echoed at a Brisbane Alumni Reception (30 April) where University Chancellor, the Honourable Michael Field AC and a panel of alumni explored what makes Tasmania distinct.

Executive Director, Advancement Kate Robertson said all these activities celebrated the University and the achievements being forged by its alumni community.

“By engaging our alumni, we hope to inspire them to continue their positive impact across the world while ensuring they remain connected to the place at the very heart of our social mission - Tasmania.”
