New faculties at Uni Newcastle

As promised, (CMM July 30) Uni Newcastle is consolidating five faculties into three

Vice Chancellor Alex Zelinsky announced the new model yesterday.

The new organisations, and leaders, are;

* Business & Law and Education & Arts (PVC John Fischetti)

* Engineering & Built Environment and Science (PVC Lee Smith)

* PVC Health and Medicine (PVC (acting) Liz Sullivan)

All five PVCs of present faculties will work on, “design principles that will underpin our new structures.” Professor Zelinsky says there will be, “more uniform structures with clear and consistent responsibilities between schools and faculties.”
