From the Vice-Chancellor
Professor Roy Crawford
Welcome to this final edition for 2010 of the Alumni and Friends E-News. As we head towards the end of the year I have been reflecting on the University’s achievements. During 2010 I have been able to share many of these at alumni functions within New Zealand and overseas and I take great pride in being able to report on our successes.
Recently I was in China with the Chancellor, the Rt Hon Jim Bolger. We attended an excellent 'alumni and friends' event that we co-hosted with the New Zealand Ambassador to China, Carl Worker, at his Official Residence.
