A University Club is to be established in Wellington in the near future according to a report tabled at the April meeting of the University Council.
The report, tabled by one of last year's student representatives on the council and a senior lecturer in Administration, Mr David Shand, said that the Club will be officially launched at a function in early June.
Established by lay members of the University Council on the initiative of former NZUSA President, Peter Rosier, the Committee on the Establishment of a University Club is now seeking University help for initial finance.
The Committee envisages a membership of between 800 and 1200 and reported to council that it would need at least $10,000 to be met from sources other than subscriptions in order to become established.
Mainly for university graduates, the Club is looking for clubroom facilities in the business area of the city. The establishment committee has adopted a full constitution, is seeking incorporation, and will be attempting to gain a license for the sale of liquor.
