Who’s minding Murdoch U

Provost Romy Lawson is named interim VC, “until a newly-appointed VC commences”

“Professor Lawson has enthusiastically agreed to guide the university as we transition to new leadership (she) has both my confidence and that of the university senate to take us through this transition period,” Chancellor Gary Smith tells staff.

Mr Smith also announces the VC selection committee, which includes staff elected member Gerd Schröeder-Turk.

The panel also includes former Curtin U and present Uni Queensland VC Deborah Terry.
