From the Vice-Chancellor
Professor Roy Crawford
The University of Waikato is once again proud to recognise the achievements of three outstanding alumni: Distinguished Professor of Mathematics Marston Conder, Māori Land Court Judge Stephanie Milroy and Singaporean design-agency owner Edmund Wee.
As the University celebrates 50 years of excellence in teaching and research in 2014, it is the success of our graduates that contribute to this University's growing international reputation. This year's Distinguished Alumni are a credit to this University and we are pleased to recognise them for the exceptional contributions they are making to their careers and communities.
I hope you will be inspired by the success of the alumni featured in this special Distinguished Alumni E-News. They are part of a growing group of students, staff and alumni who are creating positive change in their chosen fields all around the world.
