Review of University Medals 2015
In February 2015 the University undertook a self-review of University Medals. The scope of the review included the definition of the award of University Medal. The optimal distribution of medal awards, including trend data by College, program and gender; and the benchmarking of medal processes and policies against the Group of Eight.
Following external review by Professor Pauline Nestor (Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research)) at Monash University, and consideration by the University Education Committee and Academic Board, the University Vice-Chancellor has approved a number of recommendations for implementation from 1 January 2016.
The approved recommendations of the review are available under the referenced documents on this page.
