Region. New head of UWS

Professor Peter Shergold will be installed, this month, as UWS Chancellor by the Governor of NSW, Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir. The secretary of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet from 2003-2008, Professor Shergold was the nation's most senior public servant, serving four prime ministers and eight ministers in both Labor and Coalition governments. During this time, he established the Office of Multicultural Affairs, headed the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC), and was Secretary of government departments, including the Department of Education, Science and Training. In 2010 the UWS Board of Trustees elected Professor Shergold as successor to Mr John Phillips who retired in December after almost 10 years of service as Chancellor. The function will be held on Saturday, March 19, at the Parramatta campus.
