Lawson leaving Murdoch U for Flinders

Interim VC Romy Lawson will go at year end

Acting chancellor, Ross Holt announced her departure to staff yesterday. Professor Lawson joined Murdoch U as DVC E in July 2016 stepping up to provost in June ’18. She became interim VC in July, following Eeva Leinonen’s departure.

Mr Holt says the search for a new VC continues and the university “will consider the need” for interim VC arrangements between Professor Lawson’s departure and an appointment arriving.

Flinders U announced her appointment as DVC Students just hours later.
