The University of the South Pacific (USP) has a multi-facet role in the Pacific region.  Besides its core function as a provider of tertiary higher education and research in the region, it also plays a significant function as a regional organisation.  In this talk, Professor Rajesh Chandra will discuss how the University engages within the broader regional framework and how it serves the Pacific through higher education, research, and regional integration joint-efforts with other regional agencies.  Professor Chandra will also discuss the new Framework for Pacific Regionalism and how USP is engaged in its implementation.
Professor Rajesh Chandra has been Vice Chancellor of The University of the South Pacific since August 2008.  He has served USP for close to 30 years, where he has held a number of senior positions including Acting Vice-Chancellor, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic) and Director of Planning and Development.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
