Campus engagements to focus on ideas exchange

04 September 2015

Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price is set to embark on a fresh round of campus engagements during which he will meet staff to exchange ideas on key matters affecting the university.

These campus-wide discussions are an opportunity for staff in all faculties and departments to hear directly from the vice-chancellor about recent developments at the university, and also share their own thinking, concerns and ideas.

"During my time as vice-chancellor I have from time to time embarked on campus-wide discussions with various constituencies," Price explains. "They served to give me an opportunity to share my thoughts on key matters directly with staff but even more importantly to receive key inputs from staff on their thinking, their concerns, their ideas. In my view, these engagements have often proved important in narrowing the distance between the executive and staff."

Engagements kick off this week in the Faculty of Commerce, with sessions for other faculties and departments rolling out over the rest of this year and into early 2016. Dates, times and venues of each engagement will be circulated to staff by their deans or executive directors.
