University of Queensland vice-chancellor Professor Debbie Terry has appointed Emeritus Professor Gerard Sutton to lead an independent review of the university’s integrity and accountability reform program. Terry said the reform will focus on three core themes: compliance, capacity and culture. “Compliance refers to our governance and integrity systems and policies, along with our interaction with governance bodies such as the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency and the Crime and Misconduct Commission,” Terry said. “Capacity ensures we have appropriate resources and training in place to achieve our integrity objectives. Culture describes our efforts to make integrity a pervasive ethos within our university.” Terry said Sutton, who is the former vice-chancellor of the University of Wollongong, will be joined by Dr David Watson to undertake the review process. Watson was previously a commissioner for the 2004 Commission of Inquiry into Integrity Management Systems in the Queensland Racing Industry and, as a Queensland MP, was a member of the Parliamentary Criminal Justice Committee from 1992 to 1995.
