Retirement of Professor Gerry Griffin, Pro Vice Chancellor
University of South Australia Business School
Invitation to contribute a Commemorative Album message.

Professor Gerry Griffin, Pro Vice Chancellor of the University of South Australia Business School (formerly the Division of Business), will retire from the University in July 2013. Over the years, Professor Griffin has developed warm and enduring relationships with the Business School's alumni, both in Adelaide, and around the globe.

Even if you have not had the opportunity to meet Professor Griffin personally, you have nonetheless benefitted from his vision and leadership. The international regard for the UniSA Business School, and by extension your degree qualification, has grown as a direct result of the quality agenda and initiatives he has driven.
