FUSA farewelled with Flinders U only official

Legislation to remove the definite article from the higher education institution formally known as The Flinders University of South Australia has royal assent, so FUSA is now Flinders U. Management uses the opportunity to tell staff to maximise research impact metrics by using the official name. Using FUSA, Flinders Medical Centre, or centre and institute names alone risks publications not being attributed to the university, management tells staff. The last time a parliament dealt with such a substantive change was in NSW when the University of Western Sydney wanted to become Western Sydney University.
