The University of Western Sydney's Vice-Chancellor, Professor Barney Glover, has announced two recent appointments.
Board member, Elizabeth Dibbs, has been appointed to the prestigious role of Pro Chancellor at UWS, while Board member Christopher Brown AM has been re-appointed as a member of the Board of Trustees for another four years.
Professor Glover congratulated them both on their appointments.
"I am looking forward to working with both Elizabeth and Christopher, drawing on their knowledge and experience to help guide the University's future over the next few years," says Professor Glover.
Elizabeth joined the Board of Trustees in February 2014, and is also a member of the Board's Audit and Risk Management Committee.
