Seventeen UNSW Canberra alumni were recognised for their contribution to Australian society in the 2019 Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Dr Alan Dupont, a 1971 graduate, received the honour of Officer (AO) in the General Division for distinguished service to the international community through security analysis and strategic policy development.

The graduates were among 106 members of the wider UNSW community included on the 2019 Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

UNSW President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Jacobs congratulated honourees from the UNSW community.

“We are incredibly proud of the University students, staff and alumni recognised in this year’s Queen’s Birthday honours,” said Professor Jacobs.

“It is a wonderful acknowledgment of the contributions members of the UNSW community make toward the betterment of our society here in Australia and across the world through inspiring leadership in their respective field. I congratulate all who have been honoured.”
