The Community Friends & Networks Programme (CFNP) was a new initiative at the University of Tasmania. In October 2008, the Business Faculty, International Services and Student Services commenced the Community Friendship Pilot Programme. The Community Friends & Networks Programme was launched in November 2009 and continues to expand on the success of this initiative.
The programme seeks to support UTAS students to experience the real Tasmania during their stay, or as they build a permanent new life in the State. Those welcome to participate include international students, students newly arrived on a humanitarian visa, migrants, students from other parts of Australia, and students from regional Tasmania. CFNP is statewide and coordinated out of Launceston and Hobart.
The CFNP is also exploring other possibilities of expanding students’ horizons by developing networks through participation in volunteer programs, work experience and other activities.
Currently enrolled students can also join us on the Facebook page (closed group) and automatically receive invitations to activities and events on campus and in Launceston, and chat with other CFNP members. To find us search for CFNP ~ North and request to join.
For information regarding CFNP North please email Michelle.Brownlea@utas.edu.au or call 6324 3566.
Office hours: 9am - 5pm Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
