Head of School Prof Simon Dennis off to a new adventure

Our Head of School since July 2013, Professor Simon Dennis, is heading off on his next academic adventure leaving us today and heading for the University of Melbourne. Simon is leaving a strong legacy from his time with us across all aspects of the School from championing new programs, improvements in student retention, a new Psychology Clinic at Ourimbah, and a plethora of initiatives in research from GICs to supporting individual staff research endeavours. Simon will be greatly missed. We sincerely wish him well in his new and exciting role at Melbourne.

Where to now for the School of Psychology? Professor Jenny Bowman is Acting Head of School and the recruitment of a new Head of School is well underway. Watch this space for the next chapter in our School’s life and times.
