Alumni Update 2012 Issue 10 University of South Australia, Business School
University of South Australia Business School
2012 marks the 21st anniversary of the University of South Australia. As well as an occasion of much celebration, this landmark anniversary has also provided an opportunity to reflect on our future ambitions and position. In recognition of our sustained achievements over recent years, and our status as one of the top business schools in Australia, the senior management of the University of South Australia has recently endorsed a change in title – we will now be known as the University of South Australia Business School.

The Gavin Wanganeen Indigenous Scholarship – still kicking goals!
The Gavin Wanganeen Indigenous Scholarship, established in 2005, is directly changing the lives of individuals who, in turn, are inspiring others to change their lives, thanks to the generosity of our many donors!
Many of our scholarship graduates are now working in the areas of Indigenous health, education and social work while others are making their mark in the field of arts and media.
Help us kick goals for disadvantaged indigenous students and support the Gavin Wanganeen Indigenous Scholarship appeal.
