Study hub support
The plan to set up a centralised university study hub in the Pilbara has progressed another step with the creation of an advisory committee.
Nine people have been selected for a new advisory committee for the proposed Karratha-based Pilbara Universities Centre, a supported distance education service in Karratha in the model of Geraldton Universities Centre after an expressions of interest period in August.
GUC chairman Steve Douglas said he was encouraged to see strong support for the project.
The committee’s first meeting was last Thursday, with members’ specific roles chosen.
