Dear alumni and friends

Welcome to your first edition of Accord. It gives me great pleasure to announce the launch of our new electronic newsletter for alumni and friends. Accord will offer you the chance to connect with some of the wonderful events and opportunities the Faculty has to offer you.

With a New Year fast approaching it is a season of new beginnings and positive transformation across the Faculty and the University. Following the Senate’s recent endorsement of the Vice-Chancellor’s Strategic Plan 2011-2015, I am pleased to announce that the Discipline of Economics, Graduate School of Government and the Centre for International Security Studies will be joining a newly constituted Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences from 1 January 2011.

This will consolidate the social sciences at the heart of the University’s largest and most diverse Faculty, whilst continuing our strong connections to the new Business School. We are excited about the opportunities these developments will offer for our students, staff and indeed our alumni.

I hope that Accord will provide you with a useful and enjoyable source of information and advice about the Faculty, and serve as way of continuing and renewing your interaction with your Faculty and University.

My best wishes to you and your families for the Holiday Season.

Professor Duncan Ivison
Dean | Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
The Faculty of Arts becomes the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
