Staff Movements and Role Changes

Professor Lewis Bizo, Executive Dean, BJBS

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Professor George Stuart our new Head of School in Psychology to Charles Sturt University. George brings with him a host of experience in higher education, both in Australia and in the UK. I am sure he will be a great asset to the School, Faculty and the University. I would also like to thank Associate Professor Andrew McGrath for his efforts as Acting Head of School and the dedication that he brought to that role.

I would also like to welcome Shara Cameron who will serve as acting Director of Engineering whilst we undertake a search for the next Director of Engineering. I thank Professor Jim Morgan who is retiring from the role of Director of Engineering and returning to family and friends in Texas. I know we very much enjoyed his farewell function.

Also, welcoming Dr Troy Whitford as Sub-Dean Learning and Teaching, noting Troy’s immediate impact on the faculties’ move to improve its communication of important initiatives and opportunities to all staff.

And finally welcoming Associate Professor Jenny Kent as acting Deputy Dean covering for Associate Professor Michael Kiernan whilst he is on long service leave before his departure from Charles Sturt at the end of April. Please note that we are working quickly to undertake searches to fill vacant positions, and ensure we have appropriate cover where we require people to act into roles.
