We are a people centred and values-based institution.
Creating a safe, supportive and inclusive culture for our students and staff is central to how we think and act. In her role as Pro Vice-Chancellor (Culture, Wellbeing and Sustainability) Professor Otlowski has responsibility for chairing the University’s Equity and Sustainability Committees and shepherding the whole of institution work in these areas. In doing so, she is actively seeing to progress the University’s goal of ensuring that we are an equitable, inclusive community, well positioned to meet our sustainability commitments as set out in the Strategic Framework for Sustainability.
Professor Otlowski’s background equips her well for this role, with a research mission focused on the relationship between the law, ethics and health. She has been a member of the Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Tribunal for 18 years, led the development of the University Statement of Values in her capacity as Chair for the Your Voice, Culture and Communication Reference Group between 2010-2012 and served as Dean of the Law School from 2010-2017.
In this role, Professor Otlowski reports to the Vice-Chancellor and her focus is on initiatives which build a safe, equitable, inclusive and sustainable University community, which is true to our institution’s Statement of Values.
