Each year International House hosts the Walter Westman Lecture on Science, Humanity and the Environment. This is in honour of Walter Westman, an alumnus of the House from 1967 and the winner of the International House Alumni Award for Achievement in 1988.
Supported by SUIHAA, we had the pleasure of launching the inaugural De Graaff-Elms Roundtable on Sunday 7 April 2019. Guest speakers, Patricia Garcia AO, Professor Mark McKenna and Andrew Ford OAM, spoke eloquently on topics ranging from the philosophy and practice of constructive international relations, pathways to peace, and the role of music promoting cultural diversity.
