CQUniversity Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Nick Klomp travelled to India with Federal Minister for Education Dan Tehan this week as part of a delegation of Australian Vice-Chancellors and sector leaders to support and strengthen the great relationship Australian Higher Education shares with India.

During the trip Prof Klomp had the opportunity to showcase CQUniversity’s existing collaborations in the country, including the Salaam Baalak project and present to Minister Tehan on the activities CQUniversity was undertaking from the University's South-Asia office.

“It was an honour to introduce Minister Tehan to one of #CQUni’s most valued partners, Dr Praveen Nair and Salaam Baalak Trust,” Prof Klomp said.

Minister Tehan spoke of the importance of continuing education relationships in the region.

“The relationship that we have, which has been formed by education, I think, is truly unique and truly remarkable… It is something that we all should cherish and should ensure that we continue to grow it,” Minister Tehan said.
