Mr GOODENOUGH (Moore) (16:32): May I take this opportunity to place on record that Professor Kerry O. Cox, the Vice-Chancellor of Edith Cowan University within my electorate, will retire from his position on Saturday, 6 September 2014. During Professor Cox's tenure over the past eight and a half years, the university has made outstanding progress which has seen the rapid development of ECU into a quality university. Under his prodigious leadership, the university has built its reputation across many areas including: engagement, increased participation in higher education, research and development capacity, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander reconciliation, and health and wellness. His achievements have positioned the university well for the next stage of its development.

It was recently announced by Dr Hendy Cowan AO, Chancellor of Edith Cowan University, that the University Council has appointed Professor Steve Chapman as the next Vice-Chancellor. Professor Chapman is currently the Vice-Chancellor of Heriot-Watt University based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Professor Chapman's career achievements to date combined with his commitment to higher education make for an exciting future at ECU. Importantly, this appointment will position the university extremely well to build on the outstanding leadership and contributions of Professor Kerry Cox.
