Professor Greg Craven
“Engagement gives students and staff greater understanding of themselves, of others, and of the settings in which their learning can have a positive effect. It offers concrete examples of their moral and ethical obligations as citizens and human beings, and of the relevance of the Gospel in their lives.”
Professor Greg Craven
Vice-Chancellor and President
