Deputy Vice-Chancellors (Academic) have overall responsibility for the planning, quality and delivery of the university's undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programs. This includes regular reviews of the university's policies and procedures to ensure excellence in teaching.

Universities Australia coordinates meetings of Deputy Vice-Chancellors (Academic) twice a year to discuss issues of interest. In addition, an executive has been formed to action urgent issues out-of-session. The executive for 2016 comprises:

  • Professor Pip Pattison (Chair)
  • Professor Martin Carroll
  • Professor Carol Dickenson
  • Professor Jennelle Kyd
  • Professor Jane Long
  • Professor Arshad Omari
  • Professor Pascale Quester
  • Professor David Sadler

This a list of all of the Deputy and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic) representatives from universities to the Universities Australia Deputy and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic) committee.

This list is intended to facilitate contact with individual Deputy Vice-Chancellors, rather than allow mass distribution of material.
