Dear alumni and friends

As the end of the year approaches, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all alumni and friends for helping make 2010 such a successful year.

Looking back, we have achieved a great deal ... with the launch of the online mentoring program, initiatives to support our local and international students, and helping shape the future of the University through the Strategic Plan 2011-2015.

In the coming year we will have a renewed focus on further improving our services and we'll be asking you to assist by sharing your views.

On behalf of the Alumni and Events team I'd like to extend our best wishes for the festive season and New Year.

With kind regards
Tracey Beck | Director, Alumni and Events Office
