The Group of Eight (Go8) congratulates Professor Brian Schmidt on his appointment as the next Vice Chancellor of its member university, the Australian National University (ANU).
“To the Go8 Professor Schmidt needs no introduction as he is already a very esteemed and much celebrated academic at the ANU. I consider it a great coup that the ANU has been able to have him stay on as its next Vice
Chancellor,” says Chief Executive of the Go8 Vicki Thomson.
Ms Thomson said the Go8 looked forward to the wise contribution Professor Schmidt would bring to its Board and to working with him to ensure a robust university sector.
“We are in the midst of some very challenging times and it is academics of the calibre of Professor Schmidt who can assist us through them.”
