Where one senior veep is not enough

Monash U VC Margaret Gardner announces a change to the executive following Marc Parlange’s announcing he will soon be on the road to Uni Rhode Island

His portfolio, provost and senior vice president will now cover international campuses as well as faculties.

And there is a new job, deputy vice chancellor and senior vice president research – one of the criteria for which, suggest learned readers, is the ability to announce the full title before listeners lose interest.

But can they both be senior veeps, surely only one can be senior to the other veep?

Not at Monash U, where there are five senior vice presidents (more than there are ordinary and associate VPs).
