Welcome to the third and last edition of the Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty News for 2009.
The last semester of each year could easily be considered the busiest, as staff and students prepare for the close of one year and the beginning of another.
Certainly the Faculty has seen much activity this semester in both scholarly and administrative pursuits. Staff have been recognised for their research, students for their application and aptitude and the Faculty as a whole has turned to “greener” pastures to increase its sustainability.
I look forward to working with you all again in 101 and would like to wish everyone an enjoyable Festive Season and a safe and prosperous New Year.
