Alumni shine in our Jubilee year

A special Jubilee print edition of Macquarie Matters (which is usually published online) is out now and has been mailed to over 42,000 alumni and donors around the world. It reflects on the achievements of alumni and the University over the past 50 years, and looks to the next phase of our development.

  • 50 years of achievements: Salutary achievements and a pulsating campus life feature in an eventful timeline
  • Stories from across campus: Picking up PACE – a new way of learning, highlights of our unique hidden treasures across campus, and resilience – the key to coping with emotional distress
  • Outstanding alumni: A selection of high-achieving graduates share what Macquarie means to them
  • The Impact of giving: A donation to the University can change someone’s life – Alumni bequestor Derek To shares his motivation for giving
