Two hired to manage restructure

LA TROBE University has hired two new leaders to head the institution's new college structures.

The move comes as the university embarks on a drastic restructure, including the merging of five teaching faculties to two colleges.

The university searched internationally for two leaders to spear-head the changes.

Professor Graham Schaffer will be the inaugural Pro Viceā€Chancellor for the College of Science, Health and Engineering and Professor Anthony McGrew will be the inaugural Pro Viceā€Chancellor for the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Commerce.

Vice-Chancellor Professor John Dewar said the leaders would have key roles in delivering a new operating model.
