Leadership at the University of Newcastle

Under the governance and strategic leadership of our Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor, supported by the Council and Executive Committee, the University of Newcastle workforce of academic and professional staff are working toward the realisation of our 2025 vision and the Looking Ahead Strategic Plan.

What does leadership look like?

Leaders understand the environment in which we operate, they think big and they act strategically. Most importantly, they envision success for themselves, those around them and for the institution as a whole.

At our University, we value leadership at all levels. We encourage and support our emerging leaders to acquire, develop and practice their leadership skills - making a valuable investment in their own development and the University's future.
