Former lecturer picks up New Year honour for service
A former UCOL lecturer and project director has been recognised in today's New Year honours.
Jule Einhorn has been made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to tertiary education and art.
Now living in Wellington, Einhorn managed the 2008 opening of the new UCOL campus in Whanganui from its conception through to completion.
Her citation says she focused on inclusivity and ensured that Whanganui iwi were partners in the campus project.
During the 1990s she lectured at UCOL Palmerston North, and Canterbury and Lincoln universities on art, design, photography, art history and printmaking.
At a UCOL graduation ceremony in March, 2012, Einhorn received an Institutional Medal for "particularly meritorious services" to UCOL.
Einhorn managed disposal of parts of the old campus and led negotiations with the Tupoho Whanau Trust to establish a community complex at the old UCOL campus.
"These achievements are fine examples of Jule's professionalism and dedication to regional education and the furtherance of bicultural harmony and understanding," chairman of the UCOL council Trevor Goodwin said at the time.
