Janet Cretan is a respected member of the Tasmanian community, who has a long and involved history with the University of Tasmania and the broader community. Her father, the Late Professor Keith Isles CMG was Vice-Chancellor of the University for a decade from 1957 to 1967. Being the daughter of the Vice-Chancellor, and at a challenging time for the University, meant that the University was a significant part of Janet’s life, living on the University campus in Sandy Bay.
