Interim arrangements for Education Portfolio
25 July 2013
Following last week's announcement that Professor Derrick Armstrong will not be seeking a renewal of his appointment as Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) and Registrar, I have put in place a number of reporting re-alignments to ensure that the work of the Education Portfolio continues seamlessly.
The following staff will now report directly to me and, alongside their current responsibilities, will undertake a number of increased accountabilities:
- Professor Marie Carroll, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic Affairs), will cover the functional delegations of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education), as set out in the "Education and Student Management" section (Part 13) of the Administrative Delegations of Authority.
- Professor Tyrone Carlin, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education Operations) will assume oversight of Student Support Services, headed by Jordi Austin, and the Social Inclusion Unit, headed by Annette Cairnduff.
- Mr David Pacey, Executive Director and Portfolio Manager, has been appointed Acting Registrar and will exercise the functional delegations of Registrar, as also contained in the Administrative Delegations of Authority.
I am continuing my discussions with SEG on how best to support and progress the University's strategies in education and student life, and will provide you with further information in due course.
