This project is proudly funded and supported by Monash University.

Monash University, Clayton Campus. Further campus location details will be confirmed closer to the commencement of the project.
Description of the project:

Each year members of the Monash Community are recognised by the Australian Government for excellence, achievement or meritorious service and contributions to our society through the Australia Day and Queen's Birthday Honours lists. Following the announcement of the Honours lists, the Vice-Chancellor acknowledges the members of the Monash Community for their award by provision of a physical letter.
The current process to identify the Monash Community recipients is manual, time consuming, costly and vulnerable to human error. We are seeking an automated process to identify the Monash Community Australian Honours recipients.

Project Aims:

1. An automated process to identify Monash alumni, staff and students who have received an Australia Day or Queen's Birthday Honour.
2. A list of recipients of Australia Day and/or Queen's Birthday Honour recipients from the Monash Community, with their known/updated contact details, the nature of their affiliation with Monash, and details of their award citation.
3. An automated process to generate personalised letters for recipients, which allows for personalised input from key University staff (eg. Primary Relationship Managers for recipients).
4. An automated process to record a copy of the correspondence and update their UniCRM Engage record with new information (updated contact details, involvement code).

At Monash, the desire to make a difference informs everything we do.

But we go beyond good intentions. We make an impact, both locally and internationally. We are a global university with a presence on three continents. And our plans for the future are ambitious.

We have four local campuses throughout Victoria, an international campus in Malaysia, and centres in the People's Republic of China, Italy and India. Each provides an environment that identifies and nurtures talent – and turns that talent into ability.

We believe the best way to help our people meet the challenges they face is to provide a supportive environment. We champion and support our students so they have a memorable university experience. It's a friendly university – no matter which campus you attend.
