The magazine celebrates the launch of the University's first institutional online donation platform and giving page, as well as many institutional developments and the achievements of our students, staff and alumni. 

This issue also introduces newly elected Alumni Association office bearers and the executive committee members as they embark on their three-year term of office.

Each of us, regardless of our official standing, can all be in service of society in helping to change the world, wherever we find ourselves. 

Please help us to share the good news of our efforts in making a positive difference.  We’d love to hear from you, so do email your feedback to
