Professor Katie Normington and Dr David Ashton have been appointed as Deputy Principal (Academic) and Deputy Principal (Operations) respectively.
This means that, in the absence of the Principal, Katie or David will be authorised to act on the Principal’s behalf. The role was previously held by Professor Rob Kemp, who left earlier in the year.
The appointment to Deputy Principal is an administrative change only, with the decision to appoint two deputies ensuring there is adequate cover throughout the year should it be necessary for any two of Paul, Katie or David to be absent at the same time.
Later next month, the role of Secretary to Council will move from David Ashton to Elaina Moss. This reflects the importance of the role of Secretary to Council and the roles of Principal and Deputy Principal being independent of one another.
