The University Senate has re-appointed Belinda Hutchinson AM for a second term as Chancellor.
“I am honoured to have the opportunity to continue working with the Senate, the Vice-Chancellor and other University leaders on behalf of all our staff, students and our community more broadly,” said the Chancellor.
Ms Hutchinson became the University's 18th Chancellor at the start of her inaugural term in February 2013. She is an alumna of the University, holding a Bachelor of Economics.
"Over the past four years, I have been inspired to see first hand the impact of our University’s teaching and research, and proud to see the enormous steps we have taken to embrace diversity and inclusion in support of our aspiration for the University of Sydney to be a place where anyone can excel, regardless of background.
“Our INSPIRED philanthropy campaign has broken new ground to enable excellence in teaching and research, and our 2016–20 strategy sets an aspirational and achievable vision for our University.”
An advocate for the critical role of world-class tertiary education and research in securing our economic and social future, Belinda Hutchinson has a distinguished career in business and a commitment to deepening the culture of philanthropy.
In addition to her role as Chancellor, she is currently Chair of Future Generation Global Investment Company and Thales Australia; a director of AGL Energy and Australian Philanthropic Services; a member of the Salvation Army Eastern Territory Advisory Board and St Vincent’s Health NSW Advisory Council.
