A long farewell for La Trobe U VC

John Dewar stays until January

Chancellor John Brumby announced the exit yesterday stating he has agreed with Professor Dewar for him to leave when his contract expires.

Dewar became VC in 2012, moving from provost at Uni Melbourne.  In 2019 university council extended his second term by three years.

The announcement encouraged speculation yesterday that he will not be the only veteran VC to announce an exit in the coming few months.
