Acting Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts

Dear colleagues,

Following the appointment of Professor John Simons to the role of Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), the position of Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts has become vacant. An international search for a new permanent Executive Dean is now underway.

I am very pleased to let you know that in the interim, Professor Martina Möllering has agreed to take up the role of Acting Executive Dean of the Faculty. Martina is currently Head of the Department of International Studies at Macquarie, and Professor of European Languages. She is a well-published researcher and award-winning teacher with a longstanding commitment to our University – indeed she is a Masters and PhD graduate of Macquarie.

I would like to thank Martina for agreeing to step up into this role and to the rest of the Faculty for their continued support at this time of transition.

Kind regards,
Professor S Bruce Dowton
