Connecting with University alumni in Singapore
The University of Newcastle's international alumni will come together this weekend in Singapore to build their social and professional networks.
The University will hold its Alumni Strategic Workshop on Saturday 14 June to look at how alumni can contribute to its regions.
The Workshop will follow the Australian Universities International Alumni Convention 2008, a global forum for Australian university alumni and global partners to exchange opinions and share knowledge.
Associate Professor Martin Fitzgerald, Pro Vice-Chancellor Corporate Development and Community Partnerships at the University of Newcastle, said the University had more than 100,000 graduates across the world, with a strong presence in South East Asia.
"In Australia, we welcome hundreds of international students each year and these students return home to contribute to their local regions through social, business and community networks.
"We want to help all University of Newcastle alumni to connect graduates with their former student colleagues and generate future opportunities for them to develop global networks that benefit alumni and their regions."
The University has been successfully operating in Singapore since 2001 and teaches in partnership with PSB Academy at Tiong Bahru. The wireless campus includes a fully-equipped library; computer and science laboratories; lecture, meeting and study rooms; a fully-equipped gym; multipurpose hall; basketball and badminton court; and a field for cricket and football. The Workshop will bring together executives from University of Newcastle Alumni Chapters in Shanghai, Beijing, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, Botswana, Indonesia, Singapore and Australia.
The University of Newcastle's Alumni Strategic Workshop is on Saturday 14 June from 9am at the PSB Academy Building, near Tiong Bahru MRT station.
