This week Murdoch University celebrated the achievements of its newest graduates at the RAC Arena.
Over 800 Murdoch University graduates were inspired to be a creative force for current and future generations and nurture their Murdoch friendships as they begin their career journey.
The graduates, including 43 PhD researchers, were welcomed into Murdoch’s alumni community consisting of more than 80,000 people around the world.
On Tuesday night, Interim Vice Chancellor, Romy Lawson, presented the Honourary Doctor of the University to The Honourable Mathias Cormann for his dedication and service to the West Australian community on a national and international scale.
“He is a brilliant example of what the mountains you can climb if you are determined and committed enough,” said Professor Lawson.
