MESSAGE FROM THE VICE CHANCELLOR
Professor Nigel Healey
Bula! University’s alumni are its most important stakeholders. As a university, we are judged on the quality of the graduates we produce and on the contribution our alumni make to business, government and society. In turn, the value of a degree or diploma on a graduate’s curriculum vitae depends critically on the reputation of the awarding university. There is a symbiotic relationship between a university and its alumni – if one is successful, the glitter rubs off on the other; and vice versa.
MESSAGE FROM THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT
Mr. Netani Sukanaivalu '71, Honorary Alumni Award Recipient 2015
Greetings from the President’s desk!
The Fiji National University Alumni Association is embarking on creating its own identity by having its logo.
President of FNUAA, Mr Netani Sukanaivalu said it is important for the association to have a logo as it is an independent body under the office of the Division of Planning and Development (DPD).
“Since we are communicating directly with other organisations and institutions outside the University, it is only appropriate that we have our own logo. The logo should reflect the diversity of the alumni of FNU, the diverse cultures and fields of study as well as the FNU Objectives, Vision and Mission. The logo must be an original design with a tagline and a brief description of what it signifies,” said Mr Sukanaivalu.
FNU students and alumni members are encouraged to participate in the logo design competition launched by the FNU Alumni Association (FNUAA).
Closing date for the competition is Wednesday 15 February, 2017.
The winner will be awarded $100 cash.

The Fiji National University has a distinctive role in improving lives of the community and the country.
Professor Jugdutt (Jack) Singh, a graduate and former faculty of the Fiji Institute of Technology now known as the College of Engineering, Science & Technology of the Fiji National University said the university plays a vital role in nation building.
“Events such as these transfers knowledge of human journey to future generations who intend to discover how best to utilise that knowledge; students are also prepared for a higher skilled job for the future to be leaders in developing and unwrapping new knowledge to revitalise our economy, strengthen our society and tackle the many problems that we as a community will face,” Professor Singh said.
Speaking during the public lecture series of the inaugural Alumni Homecoming Weekend, Professor Singh said as the country’s very own national university, it is the University’s role to prepare its students to positively impact the future and give back to the institute and country.
