Macquarie is really committed to making the student experience the best it can be, so today we’re announcing the plan to align DVC (Students and Registrar) with the newly renamed DVC (Academic) and Registrar.
This interim plan will be effective from 1 May 2017 and won’t impact you or your studies. The current DVC (Students and Registrar), Dee Anderson, will be departing from Macquarie on 28 April 2017, and while she will be sorely missed by both staff and students alike, the University will not be replacing her role – instead focussing on consolidating that portfolio within the DVC (Academic) and Registrar structure in order to better integrate the academic and non-academic aspects of university life.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor S Bruce Dowton, says that this new structure is a natural evolution for the University. “Dee’s departure at the end of this month created an opportunity to assess how to move forward whilst continuing her passion for the student experience,” said Professor Dowton.
“Our strategy, Our University: A Framing of Futures, embodies a deep and genuine commitment to the student experience. Every one of the seven priorities in our strategy touches on it and provides direction towards our long-term vision of achieving a first-class student experience that can be benchmarked and recognised internationally.”
A review, led by Professor Kevin Jameson, Acting DVC (Academic) and Registrar, will also be conducted this year to ensure the structure best reflects Macquarie’s long-term aim of providing a world-class experience for our students.
