Uni Queensland invests on campus

How kind of VC Peter Hoj to get things in shape for successor Deborah Terry

Professor Hoj told staff late yesterday the university senate had approved major spending on;

* a $96m student residence, with 610 ensuite rooms in a 16-story building to open in 2022

* a new health and rec centre for student learning, researchers – and presumably exercise

* a “human capital management solution” to replace the existing system, in use for 20 years. “We know we need to improve in this area,” Professor Hoj said.

Professor Hoj will leave in June, to be replaced by now Curtin VC Deborah Terry.
