Provost Romy Lawson proposes a single PVC
The university’s academic units are allocated to two colleges each led by a PVC. But Professor Lawson proposes change this, with a single PVC Colleges, reporting to her.
The new position will be backed by another new role, director, business management colleges.
“The changes are designed to create greater consistency, efficiency and alignment in the way the colleges are managed and to simplify the reporting lines,” she tells staff.
Andrew Webster is now interim PVC of Arts, Business, Law and Social Sciences and Grant O’Nell interim PVC of Science, Health, Engineering and Education.
Professor Lawson says the new PVC job will be advertised internally and the business director will be recruited from “directly impacted staff.”
