James Cook U restructures leadership

Sandra Harding has taken advantage of two departures from her executive to restructure the leadership of her James Cook University. The now vacant DVC academic and global strategy and engagement positions will be abolished.  In their place the university will create a new DVC Students, based in Cairns. The new post will have charge of pathways and admissions, student learning support, examinations, careers and library and information services.

Vice Chancellor Harding will take on direct responsibility for international student engagement and recruitment, marketing and advancement.

The new structure replaces a comprehensive reorganisation in 2014 when then DVC A Sally Kift had her portfolio expanded and Robyn McGuiggan became DVC academic and global in a big promotion from her previous post as PVC for the business and law faculty (CMM April 7 2014). Professor Kift left JCU last February and Professor McGuiggan left at the end of last year and has set up a consulting service in Cairns.
