Learned readers report CMM (Tuesday) missed another potential restructure at Uni Newcastle
Word is that Senior DVC Kevin Hall last month briefed members of his 100 strong Global Engagement and Partnership division on changes that could impact staff. Uni Newcastle observers say staff on fixed-term contracts worry what any changes may mean for them.
Professor Hall now leads alumni and philanthropy, international strategy, the university’s China office and Confucius Institute. Any job changes are expected in the new year.
The university advises the marketing unit, formally in the VC portfolio is now “sitting in” Professor Hall’s organisation, “to explore opportunities to connect the marketing and communications function more closely” to alumni, advancement and international recruitment.
