2011 in review
6 December 2011
2011 has been a big year for campus improvements with a range of capital projects being delivered and started.
In July the United States Study Centre moved into the newly refurbished Institute Building on the Camperdown campus to help facilitate an increased presence at the University.
The Jane Foss Russell Building now has a new, contemporary work environment to help facilitate the Sydney Student Program.
At the Australian Technology Park (ATP) the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources moved into newly refurbished research laboratories. The research facilities are a vast improvement on previously available space and is attracting new PhD students and encouraging the formation of multi-disciplinary teams.
In Orange we have refurbished a heritage listen building on the Bloomfield Hospital Campus to provide new accommodation to the School of Rural Health and Sydney Medical School. The new facilities will allow us an increased capacity for rural student placements.
To help keep you informed of new projects and developments we have incorporated a news section into our refreshed homepage. This is only the first of many improvements to our website over the next six months that will help us deliver up to date infrastructure information and services to you.
Looking forward, 2012 is shaping up to deliver even more exciting new teaching and learning spaces.
In the first half of 2012 we will be opening extensive new learning hubs across four buildings on the Camperdown/Darlington Campuses as a part of the Learning Networks Project (TLC project). The new spaces in the Fisher Library, Carslaw Building, Wallace Theatre and PNR Building will facilitate individual or group learning with the assistance of cutting edge technology.
Rurally we are constructing the Nepean Clinical School and the Concord Clinical School -- set to deliver improved clinical teaching through cutting edge facilities and senior clinicians.
A new Centre for Carbon, Water and Food on the Camden campus will support evidence based teaching, undergraduate and postgraduate education in the fields of global change biology, sustainable ecosystems and sustainable agriculture.
The Project Prioritisation Process for 2013-2017 is currently open for expressions of interest until Saturday 25 February 2012. The process outlines a clear set of evaluation methods for prioritising project requests across the University.
