DWU opens doors to public

Divine Word University opened its doors to the public during its annual “Open Day” last Sunday 07th May, 2012 that saw the public turn up in numbers to appreciate what the University does to serve the nation. On show in the event themed “Power of Positive Vision” were the work of students and staff in teaching, research and community engagement within the six faculties of DWU. Chairperson of the Open Day Committee, Associate Professor Linda Crowl said the event went very well in her message of appreciate to staff. “The students clearly enjoyed the day, and such an exercise helps them to visualize the connection between their desk work and the real world waiting for them post-graduation,” said Dr Crowl. “Visitors also enjoyed the friendly and interesting atmosphere on campus, and they perceived DWU as a welcoming place.” “Those organizations that had stalls were able to raise a bit of income, and our charity partners were particularly grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness and raise funds.” Public and private sector partners of the faculties and their departments also came out in force at the Madang campus to demonstrate the link between work in real life with what is taught and learnt in the University. The University and the public and private sector organizations used the day to provide awareness on important issues in areas such

as public health, education, business, politics, media and the environment. Australian High Commissioner, Ian Kemish was the guest of honour, who took time to visit the display booths where the students and staff demonstrated and explained what was on show. Kemish also stayed on for the presentation ceremony in the evening. The Faculty of Business and Informatics took out the honours as the faculty with the best display, followed by the faculties of Arts, Health Sciences and Flexible Learning. The presentation for the annual EU Cup soccer tournament played amongst educational institutions in Madang also took place in the same ceremony. Tusbab Secondary School took top award in both the male and female divisions. he Open Day followed on from the successful World Media Freedom Day celebration last Friday 4th May, 2012 that saw one of the founding fathers of PNG, John Momis has guest of honour. Momis also stayed on for the Open Day. Meanwhile, DWU will host the annual Liklik Diwai Turism Expo this Friday.
