A Year On – Vice Chancellor Professor Chris Moran on Higher Education

TuneFM sits down with Vice Chancellor of UNE, Professor Chris Moran, to discuss his journey so far and what his thoughts on the future of higher education are.

This year has seen a number of changes introduced in Australia to the higher education system, including paid placements, changes to HECS-HELP indexation, and the impacts of the NSW state budget on tertiary education in Australia; for many students, an increased cost of living plays a major role in the impacts of these changes.

Now nearly a full year into the role of Vice Chancellor, Professor Moran shares his insight into the future of UNE, how we can continue to honour a long-standing legacy following the demolition of the historic Madgwick Hall, and why it is so vital that higher education be funded in Australia.
