Professor Julie McLeod appointed Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research Capability)

It is with a mixture of pride and sadness that we share the news that the Melbourne Social Equity Institute's Deputy Director, Professor Julie McLeod, will be leaving her role with us to take up an appointment as Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research Capability) for the University of Melbourne.

Professor McLeod was one of the key instigators of the Melbourne Social Equity Institute and without her energy, enthusiasm and support we wouldn't be where we are today. 

Professor Bernadette McSherry, Melbourne Social Equity Institute's Foundation Director, said "Her work with the Doctoral Academy in particular has been exemplary. She'll be sorely missed as Deputy Director, but we're sure her multiple talents will be put to good use in her new position." 

Professor McLeod's new appointment will officially begin at the start of April.
