Richard Higham QSM

James Richard Strachan Higham, Dunedin, for services to rugby and education.

Richard is on the Board of U3A and has personally delivered many courses as well as arranging many more. Together with his late wife Jane, he has been a pillar of strength for U3A Dunedin. As the citation lists, he has been very active lecturing the MBA courses at the Otago Business School, as well as being an avid rugby supporter and stalwart of numerous community organisations. We are delighted for you and your family Richard.


Call For Volunteers

Friends of the Medical School

U3A Members are exactly the right group to help the trainee doctors in their studies. “Friends” help students with interviewing and sharing experiences about coping with situations - of which we all have much know-how by this time in our lives. If you are not already a “Friend” (my wife and I have been “Friends” (of the Med School!)) for several years, please collect a brochure from the registration desk at U3A courses and see what you can do to keep Otago’s reputation at the top of the country’s rankings.
