Steering Committee

The ACU HR in HE Community is fundamentally led by our members, taking direction from feedback, surveys and general comments. On a more day-to-day basis, the Community is guided by advice from a steering committee of international experts drawn from the ACU’s constituency of member universities, and leading in the field of Human Resource Management in their higher education institutions.
