Archival film, artwork and innovative education are some of the highlights of a new exhibition documenting the first 30 years of the development of Southern Cross University currently on show in the Lismore campus library.
'Genesis: The First Thirty Years 1970-2000' plots the history of the tertiary institutions that make up Southern Cross University. The chronological display includes film, photographs, documents, student magazines, sports uniforms, theatre company programs and a wide range of memorabilia, alongside a timeline of significant events.
More than 50 guests, many of them former members of staff, including Lionel Phelps, Southern Cross University's second Chancellor from 1998-2002, were present on March 1 when Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Lee officially opened the exhibition. Malcolm Marshall, Executive Director of Corporate Services, was the guest speaker.[more]
Innovative Associate Degrees in business and allied health will be offered through Southern Cross University's newly established SCU College from June this year.
A Memorandum of Understanding signed this month with North Coast TAFE paves the way for cooperation in the delivery of the Associate Degrees, opening up new opportunities for gaining entry to University.
SCU College, which is wholly owned by Southern Cross University, has been established to encourage greater participation in higher education across the region, from Coffs Harbour to the Gold Coast, by providing additional pathways into university.[more]
