In collaboration with the Curtin University Alumni Chapter Indonesia, the Alumni & Community Relations team organised a “Back to Curtin” Perth campus trip for Curtin graduates from Indonesia. Over two days, the graduates participated in professional development workshops, networked with Curtin professional and academic staff and enjoyed a campus tour and lunch at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies.
Curtin Vice-Chancellor, Professor Deborah Terry AO, delivered an update on the University’s recent highlights and mingled with the visitors, along with several senior staff members, over morning tea.
The Back to Curtin trip provided an opportunity for graduates to explore Perth and return to where they undertook their studies.
