UNSW Arts & Social Sciences Welcomes New Dean

14 Mar 2016

UNSW Arts & Social Sciences is preparing to welcome Professor Susan Dodds as the new Dean of the Faculty. Professor Dodds, a leading researcher in moral psychology, ethics and political philosophy, will take up her appointment in early April.

Professor Dodds is currently Dean of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Tasmania, where she is also Deputy Provost. Among her many professional roles, she is the President and Chair of the Australian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, and Chair of the Australasian Association of Philosophy.

“We are delighted to welcome someone of the calibre of Professor Dodds to UNSW,” said Professor Ian Jacobs, UNSW President and Vice Chancellor. “Apart from her leadership credentials, she has 25 years’ experience in higher education, and her research focus in political philosophy, bioethics and feminist philosophy puts her at the forefront of many of society’s most important public and ethical debates.”

Professor Eileen Baldry, who has served as Interim Dean since Professor James Donald finished his tenure as Dean in July 2015, will continue in her role until Professor Dodds commences in April.
