Greg Craven has moved to, “maintain institutional unity as well as campus diversity,” at Australian Catholic University, promoting Hayden Ramsay to the new role of DVC Coordination.
“As you are aware, the university’s growth has taken place over a very short time. We have also had to respond to significant challenge (sic) recently over funding. This has prompted a period of reflection and reorganisation,” the vice chancellor tells staff.
The Coordination portfolio will also, “play a crucial role in developing a national approach to Catholicity, by coordinating Catholic intellectual life and cultural dialogue with the secular world.”
Professor Ramsay will have charge of the university’s core curriculum, associate VCs and campus deans plus institutes and centres, “that support the university’s contribution to ethics.”
He was appointed to ACU in August 2017, joining as PVC assisting Professor Craven and professor of Catholic philosophy, joining from the University of Notre Dame Australia. He has also held staff appointments for the Catholic archbishops of Sydney and Melbourne.
