Southern Cross University
Southern Cross University is powered by passion and driven by excellence. Deeply rooted in its regional communities, it demonstrates that world-class research, teaching and learning thrives outside metropolitan centres. Campuses, at Lismore in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, on the Gold Coast across from Kirra Beach and in picturesque Coffs Harbour, are the envy of Australia. Whale-watching from a Gold Coast classroom or spotting a koala from a Lismore lab are part of the unique Southern Cross experience.
The academic structure of Southern Cross is built upon four faculties – the Faculty of Business, Law and Arts, the Faculty of Science and Engineering, the Faculty of Health and the Faculty of Education. All faculties have supported this symposium in one way or another.
