Victoria U addresses deficit

Late yesterday VC Adam Shoemaker announced a restructure

Five of the university’s higher education colleges are being combined into two. The First Year College, (“our job is to make you university ready”) is outside the process. The new structure is part of the university’s plan to address a projected $29.6m year-end deficit.

“We all care deeply about the future of VU and that is why we have taken these essential decisions. For us it is always a matter of “strategy first and structure second.”  That is what we have done—and why we have done it,” Professor Shoemaker said last night.
