Bebbington’s on-song appointment

Warren Bebbington will chair the board of design college LCI Melbourne, part of a global 21-campus chain, founded in Canada. The college was created 20 years ago as the Australian Academy of Design and is in good standing with TEQSA.

Professor Bebbington was VC of the University of Adelaide from 2012 until 2017, when family circumstances necessitated a move to Melbourne. The appointment builds on his management and governance experience at UniAdelaide, the University of Melbourne and as director of the Victorian College of the Arts.

The college is bang on the national average for overall undergraduate experience on the student survey based Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching, although results for some specific measures are not as strong.

The appontment is on-song with Bebbington’s long-argued case for specialist teaching-only colleges focusing on elite education for specific vocations.
