IPC Alumni in International Relations at PNCC

On Tuesday, IPU New Zealand had the pleasure of hosting two of Palmerston North City Council's newest staff members around our campus.

Over the last 30 years, we have enjoyed an excellent relationship with the City Council, and we look forwards to being able to develop this further with the appointment of Gabrielle Nguyen, as the PNCC International Relations Manager, and Kate Harridge, the PNCC International Relations and Education Advisor.

The visit to campus was of particular interest to Gabrielle. Having graduated from IPC in the early 2000s, this visit marked the first opportunity to reconnect with the institute, this time in a professional capacity. As we toured the campus, introducing Kate to all the features of our park-like campus, Gabrielle shared some stories from her time as a student, it was a nice way for her come home.

We wish both Gabrielle and Kate all the best in their new positions, and look forward to working closely with them in the future to further strengthen international education links.
