Bankstown. :Policy centre officially launched

The University of Western Sydney will officially launch its Centre for Citizenship and Public Policy, at its Bankstown campus on Friday, May 6. "The centre seeks to promote democratic governance, active citizenship, and a practical awareness of the interdependencies of the political, the social, the economic and the environmental," said the centre’s director, Professor Anna Yeatman. "Up until now, the centre (which opened in 2008) has been laying its foundations and building its intellectual people presence. Now, the centre is really beginning to thrive and is functioning as an organic, synergetic community," she said.
