ANU Vice-Chancellor Ian Young is letting it be known he’s going to be heading up the Group of Eight (AKA the Real Universities as opposed to jumped up TAFEs):

Professor Young says he is looking forward to taking up the post in January.

“The Go8 plays an incredibly important role in influencing national polices for high education and research,” he said. “And this role plays a key part in that.”

“I am also delighted that I will play a bigger part in strengthening collaboration between Australia’s leading research universities.”

“Ian Young’s election as Go8 Chair recognises his outstanding reputation as a higher education and research leader. He is enormously admired throughout the sector for his clear-sighted, strategic commitment to excellence, and capacity to match vision with delivery,” said ANU Chancellor Professor the Hon Gareth Evans AC QC.

“To win the unanimous support of his colleagues so early in his term as a Go8 Vice-Chancellor is a great personal compliment, and a real feather in the University’s cap.
