Letters to the Editors
Earlier this month, the UNE community was shocked to find out the resignation of our former chancellor The Hon John Watkins. His presence and adept leadership will be sadly missed around UNE. John leaves UNE with students back to the centre and with our Vice Chancellor Professor Duncan who supports all students in any way possible. UNE has been lucky to have John as Chancellor and Professor Duncan as our Vice Chancellor, who both take time to speak to students when approached. It would have been fantastic to see John continue on as chancellor, but he felt it was time. John and Professor Duncan are two individuals I have the utmost respect for. I will continue the good work with Professor Duncan as the undergraduate student rep on UNE council. I wish John all the best for the future.
