Organiser

University of Tasmania

The University's Public Lecture and Forum program provides an opportunity to engage with our broader community to provide a platform for ideas, debate and discussion.

 

The University of Tasmania is the fourth oldest university in Australia, established in 1890.  Ranked in the top three per cent of universities globally and in the 10 Australian research universities, the University has a long-standing reputation for excellence in learning, teaching and research. As the only university based in Tasmania, the closeness of our relationship with Tasmania defines us as an institution, our strength and character generated by the interplay between serving our community and being the best university we can be.

 

The University works in a unique setting and actively partners with the communities in which we live, in support of a healthy, civil and sustainable society.  At the same time, we are outwardly focused and part of a global community engaging with the rest of Australia and the world.

The University of Tasmania collects your information in order to assist us to deliver public events. We may also share your information with our event co-hosts and partners. We will not share your information with other organisations which are not involved in an event for which you have registered.
