Season’s Greetings from UC, Christchurch
On behalf of the University of Canterbury, best wishes for the festive season.
This year has been challenging for UC, as it has for many organisations. But with work on campus remediation well and truly underway, a busy enrolment period and a recent commitment from the Government to support us in our recovery, we can take heart that the University is making good progress following the events of the past couple of years.
We believe that a strong university goes hand in hand with a robust, cohesive and growing economy and community. We are committed to supporting the recovery of Christchurch through closer partnerships with the business sector, secondary schools, Ngai Tahu, partner institutions, other tertiary education providers and crown research institutes.
Another important component of our plan for the future is a commitment to engage in Christchurch´s new central city health precinct, reflecting our vision of a university that isn’t just a place students come to when they want a degree; but a university that is a learning environment well connected with its communities.
I hope you will have the opportunity over the holiday period to relax, reflect on the year and look ahead.
Please accept my personal thanks for your interest in and support for the University this year. It has made a difference.
Dr Rod Carr Vice-Chancellor
