The United States of America’s Ambassador to Australia, Mr Robert. D. McCallum Jr. toured The University of Notre Dame Australia’s Broome Campus recently during his visit to Broome.

Ambassador McCallum spent time with students during a Core Curriculum tutorial where he discussed the role of an Ambassador and the relationship between Australia and the United States.

The Ambassador was accompanied by his wife Mrs Mary McCallum and the United States Consul General Dr Kenneth Chern. The guests were given a tour of the Campus by Broome Campus Manager Lyn Quince before visiting the tutorial, where he urged students to question what they could do for someone else, and for “the greater good of the community.”

The visit culminated in the Campus library gallery where the Ambassador was interviewed by local media.
