Professor Megan McAuliffe as Dean of Postgraduate Research | Te Amo Rangahau

Tenā katou,

I am very pleased to advise the new appointment of Professor Megan McAuliffe as Dean of Postgraduate Research | Te Amo Rangahau, replacing Professor Bryce Williamson who is retiring from this role at year-end.

Professor McAuliffe will be seconded to the Vice-Chancellor’s Office and lead the Postgraduate Research Office from her position in the School of Psychology, Speech and Hearing for a period of two years, with effect from mid-January 2020.

Professor McAuliffe will be responsible for leading the strategic development of postgraduate research at UC, and ongoing oversight of progressing our Doctoral students through their studies. As outlined in UC’s new institutional strategy, we have particular aspirations in ensuring our Doctoral students contribute to the agenda of UC being an internationally recognised research intensive university, and progressively growing our Doctoral student numbers to over 1300 over the next 4-5 years. Megan’s leadership will be integral to crystallizing these objectives. I know Megan looks forward to working across the Colleges, interacting with staff, and will bring new perspectives to our postgraduate research programmes.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Bryce for his sustained contributions to the Postgraduate Research Office over a number of years, including his prior role as Associate Dean Postgraduate Research (Scholarships), and more recently as the Dean. He has advanced a number of complex and largely unseen initiatives, and his deep and sincere support of UC’s Doctoral students is to be commended.

Ngā mihi
