Royal Society of Tasmania: UTAS Northern Transformation Project


The Royal Society of Tasmania Northern Branch presents The Elvin Fist Public Lecture by Professor Dom Geraghty: The University of Tasmania Northern Transformation Project …. 8 Years On.

Professor Dom Geraghty will describe the Northern Transformation journey from inception in 2016 through to the present. Dom will share how the relocation of the majority of UTAS functions from Newnham to the Inveresk Precinct is shaping new course offerings and research in the North, and the University’s vision for the future of higher education in northern Tasmania.

The Northern Transformation Project is funded by the Federal Government under the Launceston City Deal, the Tasmanian Government, City of Launceston and University of Tasmania.

Until his recent retirement, Professor Dom Geraghty was the University’s Pro Vice-Chancellor (Launceston), driving delivery of the higher education vision and strategic objectives for northern Tasmania. Prior to his appointment as PVC, he held a number of senior roles, including Acting/Head of School(s), Deputy Dean of Graduate Studies and Chair of Academic Senate.
