During the consultation on the Strategic Plan and the Professional Services Project many staff and students consistently said excessive bureaucracy and process are key issues that need to be addressed in order to make the University more efficient and flexible, and to improve the student experience.
We have given careful thought to these views and responded with a discussion paper which proposes a new College structure as one way to address these issues.
I am very keen to hear your views on the proposal and I have asked Professor Warren Lawrance to seek your feedback over the next three weeks in relation to the paper, which you can find here, as well as details of a range of new initiatives designed to improve our capacity to deliver innovative, world-class education experiences at Flinders.
I invite you to read the paper, put forward your thoughts and participate in the discussion, so we can all contribute to an even stronger future for Flinders.
Professor Colin Stirling
President and Vice-Chancellor
