HAINGE, Associate Professor Greg

I was elected to UQ’s Senate in 2016 and have served on the Senate Student Appeals Committee and a Senate governance working party. Through the latter role I have successfully advocated for a mechanism to ensure greater connectivity between Senate and Schools and in general striven to ensure that the academic purpose remains core to all Senate discussions. At the same time I am aware that this role requires a high level of awareness of the fundamental principles of good business and governance and have thus undertaken the Australian Institute of Company Director’s Foundations of Corporate Governance course.

McCUTCHEON, Professor Helen

Role of Senate is to ensure the appropriate structures, policies, processes and planning are in place for UQ to effectively manage its activities and achieve its goals.

As a member of Academic Board and a HOS I have a sound understanding of the structures, policies, processes and planning for UQ and am able to provide a link from students and staff to Senate. 

I have worked in senior roles in higher education in Australia and in a top university in the UK (King’s College London) and bring considerable knowledge and experience that may be of benefit to Senate.
