NZVCC Acknowledges Contribution Of Dr Frank Wood

The contribution of retiring Lincoln University Vice-Chancellor Dr Frank Wood to university affairs has been acknowledged by the NZ Vice-Chancellors’ Committee, the representative body for the country’s eight universities.

Dr Wood’s unexpected retirement on medical grounds was announced yesterday by Lincoln Chancellor Mrs Margaret Austin. He is currently in hospital awaiting surgery.

Dr Wood joined the NZVCC in 1997 when he took up the post of Vice-Chancellor at Lincoln and his time on the Committee spans a period which has seen great change in the tertiary education landscape.

“Frank’s contribution to tertiary education, and the university system in particular, will be sadly missed. He played a particularly significant role in both quality assurance and the process which led to the establishment of the New Zealand Register of Quality Assured Qualifications,” NZVCC Executive Director Lindsay Taiaroa says.

Dr Wood, a former chair of the NZ Qualifications Authority, was made a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the New Year’s honours list, for services to tertiary education.
