Areas of responsibility

As the standing deputy to Professor Aidan Byrne, UQ’s Provost and Senior Vice-President, the role requires representing the Provost and taking forward initiatives sponsored by their Office. One such initiative is the People, Planning, Performance (P3) project which the Deputy Provost co-leads with the PVC (Research) and the PVC (Teaching and Learning). An initial priority in this area was to develop data analytics to assist decision-makers in aligning their organisational units’ priorities with the overall strategy of the University; more recently, the P3 project has been engaged in a significant re-design of the academic appraisal process. Another dimension to the role is connected to people and culture. The Deputy Provost is the relevant senior executive for a number of matters relating to academic staffing and employee relations, including: enterprise bargaining, staff development, conduct and performance. With respect to culture, the Deputy Provost champions ability equality as well as many other priorities in the diversity and inclusion agenda. The Deputy Provost has recently been designated the Vice-Chancellor’s liaison to the residential Colleges with a view to improving collaboration to enhance the student experience. 

The Deputy Provost has responsibility for four organisational areas: Planning and Business Intelligence; UQ Confucius Institute; UQ Art Museum; and the University of Queensland Press.
