On Thursday 25th August, the Vice Chancellor, Paul Johnson, attended a Committee meeting of the UWA Academic Staff Associations for a Q&A session. The notes from the Q&A may be read here.
It may be helpful to bear in mind in reading the notes that the Q&A predated the news from Professor Johnson on Monday 5th September that he had declined to accept the Senate’s offer of a further five year term and therefor will be retiring from the Vice-Chancellorship at the end of this year. In any event, the Committee is very appreciative that the VC accepted its invitation to meet and forthrightly answered all questions put to him. We thank him for this.
