I would like to let you know that I have advised the University Council that I will not be seeking a further term as VC when my current term expires on 1 February 2019.
This will initiate the search for a new VC by the University Council. It will not be my part to advocate for a new VC but I remain responsible for the delivery of our strategies and initiatives.
This is not the time to acknowledge those who have supported me but rather to encourage behaviours that promote the long-term interests of our community. We should be remembered not for our legacies but our trajectories.
