Friday 27 March 2020

In light of the emerging COVID-19 situation and continuing policy statements from the State and Federal Government, the University is adopting a series of changes to reduce rates of infection in the community. The health and wellbeing of our community is of paramount importance. Therefore, all University events have been postponed or cancelled from midnight, Tuesday 17 March. This includes Diversity Week which will be postponed. We will continue to follow expert and health advice and look forward to rescheduling this important event. We will be in touch once a new date has been confirmed. Thank you for your understanding as we endeavour to keep our community members safe during this uncertain time.
