Tehan appoints new HE advisor

Kent Anderson joins the education minister

A year back Professor Anderson decided to give it away at UWA, after four years as DVC community and engagement.

According to VC Dawn Freshwater’s advice to staff then, Professor Anderson said he was, “looking forward to recharge and is super-excited about exploring an unconventional and innovative direction in his future career,” (CMM August 2 2018).

Which he has now achieved – there is never anything conventional about life in a cabinet minister’s office.

Since leaving UWA Professor Anderson has spent five month acting in the DVC academic portfolio at Uni Newcastle. He also serves on the Higher Education Standards Panel, the board of the National Library and as an expert member of the Council for International Education.
