New Griffith VC asks staff for big-issue advice  

Just weeks in the job Carolyn Evans identifies her agenda

Professor Evans had a bit of luck, starting as VC at Griffith U a few weeks back, in the year when the present five-year plan ends. So, she started by circulating an ideas paper on what should be in the new plan, with a draft scheduled in May and a final document in October. She also asked staff what they thought, which is now being mulled over.

Issues on her agenda include.

Infrastructure: growing the university’s presence in Brisbane, particularly Southbank and Nathan

Brand: How and what the university presents to prospective students

Students: How many, where, in what disciplines, on-campus and on-line

Research: Bringing in more money and growing output
