My thanks also to many of you who took the time to nominate one of your fellow alumni for this year’s Outstanding Alumni Awards. The celebration of our Outstanding Alumni is one of the highlights of the university calendar. Given the disruptions and challenges of 2020, we think it is more important than ever that we celebrate our Outstanding Alumni and acknowledge their achievements.
Sadly, one of the many difficult consequences of this ‘pandemic’ year has been the need to change the shape of our events and celebrations; but there is a silver lining, and I am personally delighted that our alumni and students from the Griffith Film School are collaborating on the live stream production for 2020, so that alumni from around the world will be able to join us. This year, we celebrate the very best in our alumni community with an awards program that recognises the diverse achievements of our alumni at both an academic group and university level. You can find out more about the academic group winners, who are finalists for the overall awards, via the 2020 Outstanding Alumni Awards website.
Griffith University acknowledges not only these nominees, but the achievements of our entire alumni community around the globe, numbering more than 200,000.
Vice Chancellor and President
