CALL FOR NOMINATIONS – Council of the University of Tasmania

Appointments by the Minister for Education and by the University Council

The University of Tasmania was founded to serve the entire State of Tasmania and its people. Our mission is to make a difference for Tasmania and from Tasmania to the world and we value the enabling potential of education, discovery, and creativity.

The University Council is the governing body of the University, established under the University of Tasmania Act 1992 and has responsibility for high-level strategic direction, major financial planning and monitoring management performance and compliance. It is comprised of up to 14 members, six of these members are external to the University (neither staff nor students) and are appointed by Council.

Council maintains a balance of members with skills and experience across a range of areas, including Governance, Strategy, Finance and People and Culture. It values the unique contributions of all its members and encourages Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from culturally diverse backgrounds and those from regional areas of the State to participate in the governance of the University.

The Minister for Education and the University invites interested people to nominate for three (3) vacant positions on the University Council in the category of Council appointed members.

People considering nominating should access the University Council website at for further information on the role of the Council, its committee structure, and its current membership.
