Some higher education people consider modesty to be occasionally disconnecting the flashing neon sign listing their achievements. Not Ian O’Connor from Griffith U, who just got on with the job. He steps down as he worked, discretely, tweeting yesterday; “my last graduation ceremonies as Griffith VC is a fitting topic for my last tweet. Thanks to the Griffith U community for your ongoing support, it’s been an honour to serve this remarkable university. I wish you all and incoming Professor Carolyn Evans all best.” (Yes, he tweeted but only 931 times over nearly nine years).
