WINNERS OF THE 2016 VICE CHANCELLORS AWARD FOR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Congratulations to these two teams, who established mutually respectful and beneficial relationships between University students, researchers and community stakeholders as they jointly tackled and found solutions to complexed local issues. The Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Education must also be acknowledged for creating enabling environments where innovation and engaged research can flourish.
