Flinders University is celebrating 40 years of its thriving Indonesian program and will kick off a year of celebrations with a landmark opening reception on 20 April 2018, with staff welcome to attend.
An integral part of the University since 1978, Flinders’ Indonesian connection was its first international relationship and has remained its most enduring.
Together with teaching and research, the program’s collaborations and cultural celebrations have earnt it a place in the heart and soul of the University, while its extensive community engagement has endeared it to the broader community.
The past 15 years has seen a decline in the number of young Australians wanting to learn Indonesian and many programs at Australian universities have closed, however Indonesian at Flinders has continued to flourish.
A series of events that reflect the richness of the Indonesian program’s history is planned from April through to November. The opening reception is free to attend and will include an Indonesian afternoon tea.
When: Friday 20 April 2018, 1:30 – 3:30PM
Where: Flinders University, Oasis Function Centre (downstairs)
