Hats off: Crawford bids goodbye to graduates

05 December 2019

This week, Crawford School will say farewell and best wishes to 150 graduating students embarking on a new chapter in their lives.

The graduates include 128 Crawford graduate studies students, 16 National Security College students and 6 PhD Scholars.

They will be presented with their awards at the graduation ceremony at Llewellyn Hall on Friday.

Crawford School Director Professor Helen Sullivan said she is delighted for the graduates and has high hopes for them.

“On behalf of the whole school, I congratulate all of Crawford’s students graduating this week. Today is the time to recognise and celebrate their achievements and for them to enjoy the fruits of their hard work.

“This week we’ll see students from Australia, the Asia-Pacific and beyond going through their graduation ceremonies. They come from a wide variety of cultures and countries, and have studied a diverse range of public policy issues, but what they all share in common is a goal to make change for the better in our world. That commitment, and the work they have already put in to achieve their goals, makes us incredibly proud.

“At Crawford School, we’re committed to helping our students obtain the knowledge and skills to tackle today’s and tomorrow’s policy challenges. We know our graduates will go on to, or in some cases return to, senior positions in policy and governments around the world and will help make them fit for the future.”

She added that although their time at the University is coming to an end, graduation should not mark the end of their relationship with the school.

“I hope all our graduating students continue to stay in touch with Crawford and maintain the friendships and connections that they have developed in their time here.

“Everyone at Crawford wishes them all the very best for the future.”

To celebrate with the graduates, their families and friends Crawford will be hosting a graduation party after the official ceremony.

At the graduation party Crawford will award several performance-based prizes to a number of its most outstanding students.
