After four years Kent Anderson is giving it away at UWA, which he joined as DVC community and engagement in 2014.  According to VC Dawn Freshwater’s advice to staff, Professor Anderson says he is, “looking forward to recharge and is super-excited about exploring an unconventional and innovative direction in his future career.” Given he moving to Canberra CMM suspects finding that sort of work may not be easy.

The existing community and engagement portfolio will become part of a new “global partnerships” role.

University of Tasmania DVC Global Monique Skidmore is also leaving. VC Rufus Black says she will go in the middle of the month after “nearly two years”. “Professor Skidmore developed a major campaign to support the new university degree offerings and provided strategic guidance to assist the university raise its international standing,” the VC added last night.
