Western Sydney University is pleased to announce the appointment of Glenn Campbell as Chief Executive Officer of The College.

An experienced CEO, Glenn brings strong experience in the higher education sector along with a diverse leadership career specialising in policy, strategy and operations.

For the past five years, Glenn has been the Executive Director and CEO of Deakin Co, where he led the organisation successfully through the COVID pandemic challenges to subsequently develop significant growth in new markets. Prior to this, Glenn held senior leadership roles at the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG), Barwon Water and the Department of Sustainability and Environment.

He is excited to be joining The College, particularly at such an exciting time for western Sydney with growing and emerging industries such as those associated with the Aerotropolis.

“I’m excited to join Western Sydney University and look forward to leading The College through its next phase of innovation and growth. I’m impressed with the advances and transformation already underway at the University,” said Mr Campbell.

Professor Clare Pollock, Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost, congratulated Mr Campbell on his appointment.

“On behalf of Western Sydney University, I warmly welcome Mr Campbell and look forward to him officially commencing in the role on 3 July,” said Professor Pollock.

“The College is our leading pathway provider for domestic and international students. We are incredibly proud of its transformative role in opening up higher education opportunities for students who might not have had the opportunity to go to university – particularly those from diverse backgrounds.

“No doubt Glenn’s knowledge and experience of the sector will be invaluable as he leads the College through this next exciting chapter in its development.”

Professor Pollock also thanked Dr Anthony Mitri for his valued contributions as the acting CEO of The College for the past year.

“I would like to acknowledge the leadership of Dr Anthony Mitri in his role as the acting Chief Executive Officer since July 2022. I know The College and its staff benefited greatly from his expertise, including his significant experience engaging with industry.”
