Professor Wendy Larner is this week’s speaker on the subject of University and Community Engagement.
In July 2015 she returned to New Zealand from the University of Bristol to take up the position of Provost at Victoria University.

These include adopting a distinctive academic emphasis, enhancing research quality, quantity and impact, providing a student experience that is second to none and increasing enrolments of talented students from disadvantaged groups in society.
