Campus engagement

Throughout early 2018 students, staff, faculty, partners and alumni were able to provide their thoughts and opinion via on-campus and online activities. 

Stakeholder groups and meetings

Presentations and discussions have taken place with University stakeholders to ensure they are aware of the project and have had an opportunity to participate. If you would like to invite the project team to attend your group or committee meeting, please let us know.
