UCA Forum Report

The 2015 UCA Forum 'Better Leaders, Better Collegiate Life' - Colleagues, Challenges & Conversations saw over 30 members meet at University House in Canberra to talk about issues affecting all Heads from the National Census and the (Draft) National Strategy for International Education to panel discussions on dealing with Sexual Assault, responding to the ARC Report on Alcohol Harm Minimisation and the recent changes in Graduate Residence. The Forum also focussed on Professional Standards and saw the launch of our Future Leaders'  Grant  for Deans & Deputies whilst Members present provided regional and chapter reports..

A full programme and papers from the sessions can be accessed here. See also Forum photos.

Launch of the Future Leaders Grant

In Developing Future Leaders Rose Alwyn noted that Deans & Deputies are often the change agents in their organisations and panel participants listed mentoring, management training and networking opportunities as areas of importance in their professional growth. In response, the UCA has developed a Future Leaders Grant to the value of $2,000 to support deputies/deans to engage in or undertake a project, program or course that will contribute to better collegiate life. More information is available here.

Note: a reminder that UCA Associate Membership is extended to those in senior leadership roles in Colleges & Halls. To be an Associate Member the relevant Head/CEO must be a current member.


Isolated Children's Parents' Association

The college environment is the accommodation of choice for many rural and remote students. This sentiment is expressed every year at the Isolated Children's Parents' Association (ICPA) Federal Conference. In response to their recent correspondence, UCA Secretary, Dr Carla Tromans raised their concerns at our recent AGM and undertook to distribute their correspondence to all members.  Please find this attached.
