Plenty to celebrate for new CDU graduates
HUNDREDS of new graduates celebrated at Charles Darwin University yesterday, as almost 1300 students received awards.
16 of the graduates received PhDs for their research ranging from understanding how malaria impacts important immune cells to the conservation of the bushtailed mulgara found on the sand plains of Central Australia.
The ceremonies, held at the Darwin Convention Centre, celebrated the efforts of students from a broad range of vocational and higher education courses.
Graham Bradley gave the Occasional Address at the morning ceremony while Jo Seiler delivered it at the evening ceremony.
Franck Gohier was honoured as a Companion of the University for his contribution to the development of fine arts in Australia, particularly in the Northern Territory.
