A message to new graduates from JCU Chancellor, Bill Tweddell
Welcome to James Cook University’s Alumni Community. I've been a proud member since 1972. As a part of our alumni family you have joined a network that spans more than 50 years. Members of this network have built meaningful lives, had accomplished careers, and are seeking new discoveries that will make life matter across the globe.
As you progress into this next stage of your career, I wish you all the best for your time ahead and encourage you to stay connected with the University.
