ANU provost to step down

 Mike Calford will leave the job in February

Vice Chancellor Brian Schmidt applauded Professor Calford’s achievements since re-joining ANU in January 2018, in a message to staff Friday, adding, “I know Mike has increasingly been drawn back to thinking about his research … after serving an unbroken 15 years in executive roles at four universities.” Professor Calford will become an emeritus professor in the university’s College of Health and Medicine.

Professor Schmidt also used the announcement to signal structural change to come, saying,  the months leading up to Professor Calford stepping down will be used, “to pause and reflect on how we can best structure ourselves.”

“I need the help of everyone at ANU, and the right decision-making structures among our leadership team, to deliver on our ambitions.”
