NOTRE DAME uni vice chancellor Celia Hammond has announced she’ll be stepping down at the end of next year.
Prof Hammond, who’s overseen a major expansion of the Fremantle campus while deftly winning over many critics who’d accused the uni of creating a stifling monopoly in the West End, has been in the role for 10 years. She was among the first staff members of the uni’s Fremantle School of Law in 1998.
Notre Dame chancellor Chris Ellison said Prof Hammond’s tenure had been “extraordinary”.
“I would … take this opportunity to acknowledge Celia’s accomplishments by singling out the growth in quality under her leadership – evidenced by the outstanding QILT results, Notre Dame’s financial strength and capital growth, the development of our facilities and the real depth of community experience and common purpose across our campuses,” Mr Ellison said.
