University of Adelaide Chancellor’s term concludes
Rear Admiral the Honourable Kevin Scarce AC CSC RAN (Rtd), 16th Chancellor of the University of Adelaide, has informed the University’s Council that he will bring forward the end of his term as Chancellor to today, 4 May 2020.
The Deputy Chancellor, the Honourable Catherine Branson AC QC, speaking on behalf of Council, thanked Rear Admiral Scarce for his very significant contribution to the University over almost six years.
“Rear Admiral Scarce, who commenced in the role of Chancellor on 1 December 2014, has throughout his term been a strong presence and advocate for the University,” Ms Branson said.
“As Chancellor, he has led Council during an important time of transition, when the University’s world rankings and its role in the South Australian community have continued to rise.
“His term as Chancellor has encompassed the opening of the state-of-the-art Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building, which is a critical part of the Biomed City Precinct, the adoption of a new strategic plan, and a stronger focus on outcomes for South Australia’s industry and community.”
