Victoria University Associate Professor Hon. Luamanuvao Winnie Laban visited on 5 June to talk to our Pasifika students about the support that is provided for Pasifika students at the University. This was to encourage more of our students to seriously consider tertiary study We are lucky to have David Rutherford, Chief Human Rights Commissioner, presenting a Library Lunchtime Lecture on Thursday, 19 July at 12.30 pm.
