School 70th Anniversary Celebrations

On Thursday 15 September evening the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences celebrated its 70th Anniversary at University House at the Woodward. Thank you to all who attended and made the evening such an enjoyable occasion. It was lovely to see alumni from all generations renewing old connections, making new friends, and sharing their diverse careers and experiences. 

We were also pleased to launch the Friends of Psychology Early Career Award at the reception. Established with a generous gift from alumnus Professor Leon Mann AO, this award will nurture and support our most promising early career researchers.

Below are a sample of the lovely photographs taken during the evening that we would like to share with you. Please click here to access more photos via the online album.

Following the success of the reception, we plan to offer more frequent opportunities for alumni to strengthen their personal and professional connections within this valuable community. We look forward to seeing all of our alumni again soon.
