SOUTHERN Cross University vice-chancellor Professor Paul Clark has announced his final public lecture for the Tweed Heads campus to mark his retirement from higher education.

The lecture, A Vision for our Region, will look at the future of the Tweed and the university as Professor Clark steps down from the position he has held for five years with the university next month.

“We need to explore and discuss the options and opportunities for the regions that SCU serve,” Prof Clark said.

“Being a vice-chancellor is a wonderful job and it has been a privilege to work closely with so many people, both within our own organisation and in the communities which I have come to know so well.

Prof Clark said he was particularly proud of the growth SCU has achieved over the past five years and the new opportunities it has created for students.

“Often these students are the first in their family to attend a university, and in doing so offer a whole new perspective to their sib- lings and friends,” he said.

Prof Clark's farewell lecture will be held at SCU Tweed Heads campus on Brett Street in Harvard Rooms 1 and 2 from 10am on Thursday, July 23.

All members of the public, staff, students and alumni are invited.
