A new VC at the University of Notre Dame Australia
Francis Campbell will become VC in January, joining from Saint Mary’s University in London, which describes itself as a “Catholic institution of higher education.” Professor Campbell is a former diplomat, UN, EU and UK official and political advisor, to Tony Blair. He will replace Celia Hammond who recently brought forward her long announced resignation to contest the next election for the Liberal Party.
