Uni Melbourne announces its provost

Nicola Phillips will start in September, joining from King’s College London

Professor Phillips is vice president and vice principal education at KGL, where she is also professor of political economy. She joined from the University of Sheffield in 2017.

She replaces Mark Considine who stepped down at year end, having delayed his departure to work on Uni Melbourne’s COVID-19 response (CMM November 13).

Professor Phillips will not want for familiar faces. Dean of Arts Russell Goulbourne tweeted last night that he is, “very excited about working again with my former KGL colleague and welcoming her to Uni Melbourne.”
