The university of the south pacific international library vacancies

The University of the South Pacific is a uniquely placed centre of excellence in a region of extraordinary physical, social, and economic diversity.
Established in 1968, USP is the only university of its type in the world. It is jointly owned by the governments of 12 island countries: Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Western Samoa. Students from all these countries attend the University and staff, buildings and programs are located in all the countries. The main campus, Laucala, is in Fiji. There is a second campus, Alafua, in Western Samoa where the School of Agriculture is situated, and a third, Emalus, in Vanuatu where the School of Law operates. There are smaller University Campuses in eleven of the twelve member countries.

A strong outreach program through Flexible Learning serves USP Campuses throughout the region. The multi-cultural nature of the staff and student body give USP an exceptional character. It is a quality institution producing degrees comparable to those awarded by universities in Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Graduates from USP are found in important executive positions throughout the public and private sectors in all member countries.
