Professor Stephen Parker will lead the University of Canberra for the next five years under a new contract signed last week. Parker’s term began on 1 March 2007 and was due to expire in 2012. The new contract will see him continue until 2015. UC chancellor Professor Ingrid Moses said Parker had so far overseen much-needed change and renewal, including the university’s academic program, research orientation, staffing profile, administrative arrangements and external engagements. She said the new contract would give him time to ensure the reforms were fully effective. Parker practised as a solicitor in the UK and lectured in law at University College Cardiff, ANU, Griffith University and Monash University. Before joining the University of Canberra, he was senior deputy vice-chancellor at Monash University.
