The University of Sydney has abolished the registrar position, now vacant since Tyrone Carlin stepped down at the end of last year. Professor Carlin was appointed to the post in April 2014 and returned to being a professor, of financial reporting regulation at the end of last year. He starts next week as DVC A at Southern Cross University.
Breaking up the registrar portfolio was long expected at UniSydney. The university now proposes changes including, moving admissions to Vice Principal Tania Rhodes Taylor. A new executive director position, student recruitment and admissions will be recruited. The university will also establish a PVC student life, reporting to DVC E Philippa Patterson.
