Andy Vann absent from Charles Sturt U

Vice Chancellor Andrew Vann is on a six-month sabbatical and leave as of June 22

CSU Chancellor Michele Allan announced his absence to staff yesterday.

The body of her statement reads, “This sabbatical and leave was agreed prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. We all acknowledge the significant challenges and funding pressures facing the higher education sector in Australia, and the council is focused on ensuring that the university’s staff and students have the leadership in place to ensure that Charles Sturt can continue to deliver world class higher education across all of our campuses and to our online students.”

That’s it.

Although his term runs to December ’21 it appears unlikely that Professor Vann will return. The VC job is already advertised, (CMM June 16) with applications closing at month-end.
