Former Vice Chancellor Addresses Latest Graduates

Another 450 ‘Bondies’ are ready to bring their career ambitions to life after graduating at our most recent Graduation Ceremony.

Many of our most recent graduates attended the May 31 ceremony with their family and friends, celebrating the end of another chapter in their lives and the enormous achievement of completing their university degree.

Emeritus Professor Harry Messel AC CBE, who once served as Executive Chancellor and Chancellor of Bond University, delivered the occasional address.

He spoke with passion about the history of Bond University – from the trials and tribulations of our early days, and the journey that has brought us to where we are today: "thriving as Australia’s highest rated university."
