A new era for academic governance

Late last year, elections were held for Faculty elected representatives on Academic Senate.

Many people answered the Chair of Academic Senate, Professor Dominic Verity’s call to put their preconceptions aside and to help frame the future of Macquarie University.

Find out who your Faculty representatives are.

Professor Verity and the Vice-Chancellor, Professor S Bruce Dowton, welcomed new members to Academic Senate at its first meeting of the year on 3 March 2015.

“Academic Governance is turning a new leaf in 2015 and the newly elected membership will ensure that Senate continues its vitally important renewal process,” said Professor Verity. “I strongly urge the University community to get to know their elected Senate members and to raise any concerns you have with them; after all, it is only with your help that they can bring fresh ideas, initiatives and strategies to the table.”

All meetings of Academic Senate and Committees of Academic Senate are open to observers. If you wish to attend a meeting contact
