One of the The University of the Sunshine Coast’s longest-serving academics, Professor Pam Dyer has announced her retirement. Dyer started as a lecturer at USC when it opened in 1996 and she progressed through the ranks to become Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in November 2005. She will finish working for USC in early January 2011. The University held a special invitation-only farewell event for her last week. Dyer has specialised in the areas of environmental and planning studies, natural resource planning and management, eco-tourism and interpretation, and the effects of human interaction with the natural environment. She was instrumental in USC’s introduction of a Bachelor of Regional and Urban Planning in 2004 to help meet a national need for more urban planners in regional areas.
