CQUniversity staff supporting vulnerable students

CQUNIVERSITY staff and graduates have been rallying to support international students hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis – and the team of volunteers includes 2020 Outstanding Alumnus and business executive Sean O’Donnell.

The IT industry leader said the global pandemic was taking the worst toll on already-vulnerable people, and that mateship should inspire Australians to support them.

Mr O’Donnell joined other volunteers at CQUni Melbourne recently to unload five tonnes of food to help establish a campus food bank, available to nearly 3000 of CQUni’s international students living across the city.
