Not that she was gone for long. Just weeks after stepping down as CEO of Universities Australia, Belinda Robinson is set to join the University of Canberra. She starts next week as the part-time vice-president for partnerships and strategy.
This is a big win for the university, Ms Robinson speaks fluent university which she fluently translates into the language of policy and profit respectively used by government and business. VC Deep Saini has a plan to make his UniCanberra a campus for its city and Ms Robinson will provide advice and experience to help the university create and make its case.
It’s not only UniCanberra that has invited her on-board. Ms Robinson is the new chair of both the Cooperative Research Centres Association and Western Sydney University’s pathways subsidiary.
