The Fiji National University (FNU) Council met on Saturday and unanimously agreed to appoint Acting Chancellor Tessa Price to assume the role of Acting Vice-Chancellor for one month.

She started on Monday.

Ms Price replaced Professor James Pounder, who completed his term last Friday.

Professor Pounder served as Acting Vice-Chancellor for four months.

She stepped down from her position as the Acting Chancellor while performing her new role as Acting Vice-Chancellor.

“This will allow the FNU Council time to make an appropriate appointment to the Acting Vice-Chancellor position, ahead of a permanent appointee commencing in the Vice-Chancellor role later in the year,” said Ms Price.

The Council thanked Professor Pounder for continuing the leadership following the departure of FNU Vice-Chancellor Professor Nigel Healey in March.

After meeting the Senior Management Group on Saturday, Ms Price said: “This arrangement provides me with a great opportunity to get to know each of the SMG members better and understand their aspirations and thoughts regarding how we can together take FNU to the next level. I look forward to working with everyone on the immediate priorities for the University.”
