Edith Cowan Anniversary Celebration Awards

Tuesday, 12 July 2011


This year Edith Cowan University is pleased to pay tribute to the University’s namesake Edith Dircksey Cowan. 2011 marks the 150th anniversary of Edith Cowan's birth, the 90th anniversary of her election to Parliament and the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Edith Cowan University in her honour.

In recognition of these anniversary celebrations, the University will be combining the presentation of the Vice-Chancellor’s staff and student awards at a special anniversary event, under the banner of the Edith Cowan Anniversary Celebration Awards.
