Who is this Heinz guy?

Heinz Harant was a WW2 refugee, who was in the fourth graduating engineering class of 1955. During his time at UNSW he was a kickass activist, and started many of the committees and councils on campus, focusing on everything that makes UNSW fair today.

The Heinz Harant Award is a way in which the Arc community can recognise and honour the valuable and exemplary volunteer service of an individual, who has made a significant contribution to student life at UNSW in volunteer services within Arc.
