Changes to reporting lines in the International and Development portfolio
In recent times we have made various staffing, structural and reporting changes to respond to the downturn in international student enrolment, and associated revenue, that Macquarie and other Australian universities are currently experiencing.
One of those major changes was to integrate international and domestic student services under a new Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Students and Registrar; another was to establish a Global Programs Team (initially reporting to Executive Director, Strategy Development and Implementation, David Wright) to focus on developing new relationships with overseas universities and capitalising on existing ones.
I am now writing to you to advise you of the following changes in reporting lines at the senior management level within the International and Development portfolio:
• International strategy and operations - the International Office and its Executive Director - will now report to David Wright along with the Global Programs Team.
• Domestic marketing and domestic fundraising/advancement will now report directly to me, emphasising the importance of recruitment of Australian students in a new demand-driven higher education system.
As part of these changes Caroline Trotman will be leaving the role of Deputy Vice-Chancellor, International and Development, and the position will not be filled. I would like to thank Caroline for the enormous contribution she has made to Macquarie, including the rebranding of the University and the successful marketing campaign to increase the percentage of undergraduate students choosing Macquarie as their first preference.
These changes only relate to reporting lines at the senior management level. All the roles and reporting relationships within Marketing, International, Advancement and the Global Programs Team will remain unchanged.
Steven Schwartz, Vice-Chancellor
