Roseworthy Campus and Student Fund
The Fund is established to maintain and develop excellence in education, training and research at the Roseworthy Campus of the University of Adelaide.
The fund was an initiative of the Roseworthy Old Collegians Association (ROCA) and was launched by the Vice Chancellor of Adelaide University, Professor James McWha, at a function at the RAHS, Wayville on the 25th of July 2006.
The purpose is to provide a mechanism for corporate and private donations to foster and promote the best technology being available for Australian primary industries and related pursuits. The intention is to ensure that a vibrant, sustainable and profitable rurally-based industry continues in the long term.
Roseworthy, as the oldest agricultural education institution in Australia, has long been associated with the development of new technology and the delivery of quality education. Fostering the use of superphosphate and the use of the ley farming system are early examples of innovation. The initiation and delivery of education in wine making is legendary.
The fund's patron is Mr John Crosby RDA, a prominent agri-business company director, former chairman of the NSW Meat Authority and former senior vice-president of the National Farmers Federation. The Fund is managed by Co-Patrons chaired by Mr Ray Taylor.
Tax deductible donations can be made through the Development and Alumni Office of the University of Adelaide, phone (08) 8313 5800.
