After more than five years in service as the eighth vice chancellor of Monash University, professor Ed Byrne has accepted appointment as principal and president of King’s College, London. Byrne will return to London at the end of next year. Monash University chancellor Dr Alan Finkel said Byrne’s achievements included the strengthening of the academy, the refinement of campus structure and strategic expansion of the Monash international footprint through core partnerships with the University of Warwick in the UK, and in China. He also helped develop the Campus Master Plans for Monash’s major Australian campuses at Clayton and Caulfield. A national and international search for Byrne’s successor will commence soon.
