The University relies greatly on the generosity and kindness of valued partners and community to contribute to its ongoing development. On the 22nd September 2017, NUS was once again afforded such generosities as the NUS Learning Resource Centre (Library) was gifted with a donation of 30 refurbished desktop computers by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT). 

 

This kind donation was an initiative supported by Alemania Febs Ierome, International Student Mobility Officer, QUT following a visit in late 2016 to NUS. Understanding the demand for computers in supporting student learning at NUS, Alemania answered the call for support from NUS University Librarian Avalogo Nanai Togi Tunupopo for assistance with computer resources. The two soon liaised and coordinated the provision and shipping of these computers to Samoa.

 

QUT is a major Australian university located in Brisbane, which offers high quality learning, teaching and research spaces fitted with state of the art information technology to meet the needs of students, academics and researchers.

 

According to QUT Logistics Coordinator Ms Mel Van Nek, "QUT is delighted to donate these computers to support NUS with its teaching and learning. We hope to donate more should the NUS library require them.”

 

NUS Head Librarian in response said "NUS is honoured to receive such a substantial assistance from QUT in our endeavours to provide adequate equipment to assist our students in their pursuit for higher learning and provide them with better learning opportunities.  We thank QUT profoundly for this donation."  

 

These 30 desktop computers are reconditioned from QUT, and part of a large resource of computers donated to support learning schools in Australia and abroad. The value of these computers amounts to AUD $1,470.00, equivalent to about SAT$3,000.00.  The monetary value shadows the intrinsic value of increased student access to internet and online resources as well capacity building (computing, communication skills) made possible by these technologies.

 

The Vice Chancellor recently commented on how pleased he was with this kind donation and relayed to QUT his gratitude and appreciation on behalf of the staff and tertiary students of the National University of Samoa. 

 

We especially wish to recognize the diligence, technical and charitable work of all those in Brisbane and QUT who were able to compile and transport this valuable equipment for Samoa. May God bless you richly and may you continue to find happiness and success in your work and assistance for those in unfortunate circumstances.
