The stroller strides on

Andrew “the stroller” Taggart is famous for management by walking around, conducting business as he paced campus, so it is entirely appropriate that he spending his last leave before he departs Murdoch, hiking the Kumano Kodo heritage trail in Japan.

He tells CMM that 35 years in higher education was also a fascinating journey “and to teach and research and then lead a university is something that I will always treasure.”

Professor Taggart says he looks forward to consultancies and continuing his work on the board of Coodanup College in Mandurah, which last year celebrated its first ATAR students in 19 years . “New opportunities await,” he says.
