Pip Pattison to exit Uni Sydney

The DVC E will retire at year end

Professor Pattison was recruited from Uni Melbourne in 2014, where she was DVC Academic.  This was considered something of a coup then with Professor Pattison brought in to, among many other things, renew curriculum.

Which she did – working on a plan than cut the number of UG degrees by nearly a factor of three and creating a bachelor of advanced studies, providing two UG degrees,  sort, but only sort of, like the Melbourne Model. After the first-year Uni Sydney was claiming the scheme a success, with enrolments 50 per cent up projections, (CMM June 13 2018).

“There are few people who can claim they’ve been instrumental in the redesign of undergraduate education at two of Australia’s finest universities,” VC Stephen Garton says.
