Chancellor Beazley ascends the throne tonight

johnboy 19 February 2009 1

The ANU announces that they shall enthrone Chancellor Beazley tonight in their bid to never again fear government funding cuts as long as Emperor Rudd shall reign.

    The ceremony at University House will see Professor Beazley continue a family tradition of involvement with the national university. His father, Kim Beazley snr, was involved in the foundation of ANU back in 1946…

    The program will include brief speeches from ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Chubb and the Governor-General and, following the presentation of the ceremonial robes, Professor Beazley will address the assembly. The ceremony will be followed by refreshments in the Quadrangle at University House.

At first I was concerned that this was a purely ceremonial appointment, as so many Chancellors are, but according to UWA website he has been a professorial fellow at the University of Western Australia since 2007. While it is fitting to see him achieve this honour, it is also encouraging to see that he is contributing his experience in an academic framework as well. Here’s hoping that he brings more to the ANU than a functions host.
