For Immediate Release
Another milestone has been reached in progress towards a proposed merger between CQUniversity and Central Queensland Institute of TAFE.
A 'Heads of Agreement' document has been signed by CQUniversity Vice-Chancellor Professor Scott Bowman and Julie Grantham, Director-General of the Department of Education and Training.
This agreement commits CQUniversity and DET to more intensive negotiations leading to a detailed merger agreement.
Professor Bowman said he is looking forward to working closely with DET and CQIT in coming months to create the groundwork for Queensland's first dual-sector university.
"We are looking forward to doing the groundwork throughout 2012," he said.
"This will pay off in years to come with greater study choices and career pathways for our regional students, helping them tap into our ongoing resources boom."
