The Deputy Vice-Chancellor works closely with the Vice-Chancellor and is a key member of the University’s executive committee. The DVC provides leadership for the strategic direction and operational planning for all academic activities, including the successful development and delivery of the academic portfolio across the University. The DVC manages and supports the Heads of our eight Academic Schools and works with colleagues to support successful student recruitment, the delivery of excellent teaching and learning, an outstanding student experience, and strong graduate outcomes, as well as research and community impact.
