Dr Rhonda Faragher wins staff award for Mission Excellence
Dr Rhonda Faragher has won the Vice-Chancellor’s Staff Excellence Award for Mission Excellence for her life-changing work for people with Down syndrome in Australia and around the world.
Dr Faragher has been deeply involved in improving the lives of people with Down syndrome, particularly through education, since the birth of her daughter with Down syndrome in 1996.
She joined ACU in 2006, attracted in large part because of the alignment of ACU's Mission to her personal and professional work. Through research, teaching and service, she has made an exceptional contribution to those with and affected by Down syndrome.
