Palmerston Campus activities 


Palmerston campus is preparing for its campus forum on Wednesday 19 July. The forum aims to bring staff together to share information across schools and faculties, introduce new university processes and systems, and to discuss and share views and information about educational issues.

A number of staff will take the opportunity to showcase their courses, student projects and up and coming activities taking place throughout the semester.

A newly introduced campus initiative, it is hoped the forum will set a positive collegial approach to the start of the new semester, and anticipated that this type of activity will evolve into an annual campus symposium.

The forum will be officially opened and staff welcomed by the director, remote coordination, Paul Fitzsimons. Paul will also be a key note speaker for the forum, along with representatives from Marketing, Health, Safety and Environment and FAS.
