Issue 4, March 27 2013
Welcome. You are now in the loop!
Firstly (and perhaps most importantly), don't forget that next Tuesday (Easter Tuesday, 2/4/2013) is a University holiday. As this is a concession day, you don't need to apply for leave through HRonline for this day, although you must if you intend on taking more leave. Good Friday and Easter Monday are public holidays as usual.
The Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education and Arts) Professor John Germov, convenor of the NeW Directions Future Workplace Plan, provides an update on the 2013 Leadership Workshop and other priorities under the Plan.
Two exciting lectures are taking place soon: the Barton Lecture and the David Maddison Lecture. The Barton Lecture will be delivered by the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull this year, and the David Maddison Lecuture by Nobel Laureate Barry J Marshall AC. Find out how to register to attend these events.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Professor Andrew Parfitt, updates us on what is ahead for the NeW Directions Education Plan.
Also, find out how you can have an island holiday and contribute to research at the same time, and read about the Port Macquarie's Relay for Life event.
Have a happy and safe Easter!
