The Regional Universities Network (RUN) welcomes the appointment of Professor Helen Bartlett as the next Vice-Chancellor of Federation University Australia.

The Chair of RUN, Professor Greg Hill, said that Professor Bartlett’s experience in the higher education sector, including in her current position as President and Chief Executive Officer/Pro Vice-Chancellor of Monash University Malaysia, would be an important addition to the group.

Prior to commencing this role in 2013, Professor Bartlett was Pro Vice-Chancellor and President of the then Monash Gippsland Campus.

“I look forward to working with Professor Bartlett in furthering RUN’s agenda,” Professor Hill said.

“I would like to acknowledge the great contribution that Federation University Australia’s outgoing Vice-Chancellor, Professor David Battersby AM, made to the university and to RUN. As RUN’s inaugural chair, Professor Battersby played a key role in establishing the network and building its profile. We wish him well in his retirement.”
