The University of New England provost is in-coming VC of the University of the Highlands and Islands in Scotland. It looks like a good fit for Professor Walker who has become a specialist in regionally networked higher education. Before UNE he was DVC Engagement at Federation U, where he led an expansion of campuses and international partnerships. Highlands and Islands is even more diverse, “a distinctive partnership of 13 independent colleges and research institution.”
Walker is not the only Australian import at a Scottish university– Jonathan Powles (ex UNE PVC Academic Innovation) has just arrived at University of the West of Scotland.
