Published on 18 October, 2012
The Development and Alumni Relations Directorate (DARD) has wrapped up the annual program of alumni and supporter events with functions in Melbourne, Sydney, Jakarta and London recently.
As well as providing alumni with an opportunity to hear information about progress and plans at the University, the events were a great opportunity for graduates to network with each other, hear industry news and make new contacts.

Travelling staff have assisted to deliver alumni catch-ups in China, Singapore, Thailand and London. The London event was a joint Queensland universities' function, with eight institutions combining resources to hold a major event in September.
All alumni contactable by email are currently being asked to respond to a survey aimed at allowing the Alumni Relations program to be modified and improved to meet the needs and expectations of alumni. Ascertaining the engagement interests of alumni, including specific ways to involve them with the University, is the primary focus of the survey.
