Job Description

Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students)

  • Fixed term, full-time appointment (to December 2022)
  • Level 6/7: $78,183 - $86,168 + superannuation

This role coordinates, contributes to and supports the implementation of key projects designed to enact the goals of the University’s work-integrated learning foundational plan and subsequent enabling plan. Together, the UOW WIL initiative aims to give effect to the University’s strategic goal 1.1 to maximise student outcomes and graduate success. The initiative takes a holistic approach, striving to deliver frameworks that support enhanced pedagogical practice; experiential learning that is best practice while also ensuring the delivery of WIL is underpinned by sound policy and systems. Delivering these goals requires a coordinated and distributive leadership framework. As such, this role works closely with faculties and divisions to ensure a whole-of-institution approach.

Reporting to the WIL Advisory Committee via the Associate Director Student Engagement and Employability, the role is positioned within the Pro-Vice Chancellor Students portfolio.

Teams in the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students) portfolio develop and deliver services and strategies in collaboration with Faculties, professional units and students that enhance access to higher education, and facilitate students’ success, sense of belonging and connectedness and their employability. The intention of this work is to assist students to fully realise their potential and develop the levels of agency required to do so.

The PVC (Students) Student Engagement and Employability (SEE) unit provides sector leading initiatives that contribute to students’ career readiness and their development of cross-disciplinary skills (otherwise known as T-Shaped Graduates), in alignment with the Compass framework (e.g., emotional capital, social capital and leadership capabilities). Critically this unit facilitates institution-wide strategies to enhance student mental health and leads UOW’s response when students experience mental ill-health, or issues that impact upon their welfare.

Applicants will be prompted to respond to selection criteria within the online application.  For further information about the role please contact Nuala O'Donnell on (02) 4221 3280.
