Our first keynote of the day is Rufus Black, Vice Chancellor from University of Tasmania, sharing the story of their 20 place rise in the Times HE Impact Rankings in 2023 and their ambitious Lighthouse Strategy. We will hear about the UTAS vision in the context of the social, environmental and economic sustainability context with tips on how the vision converts to impact. Rufus will emphasise the importance of vision in creating a joined up university wide approach from Student to Board, and give examples of how UTAS measures success, past, present, future.
