End of year message & Faculty-wide Forum

We’ve worked our way through an institution-wide Organisational Sustainability Plan, a new Faculty, and our current ongoing School Alignment Project. We have seen large shifts and changes, but the day-to-day effort put in by all levels of staff from all areas to work through these changes as we transition to our new team is greatly appreciated.

We have an amazing breadth of talent here in the Faculty of SET. There is huge scope for impact from us with the footprint and numbers that we have spread across our three campuses.

Well done to everyone for your work this year, and we are excited to see what impact we can make in 2023. We wish you all a happy and healthy holiday break, and look forward to welcoming you back in the new year.
