Monash VC honoured with Companion of the Order of Australia (AC)

Leadership Instincts

Monash University President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Margaret Gardner has been appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) in the 2020 Australia Day Honours.

The Companion of the Order of Australia (AC), the highest award in the Order of Australia, recognises eminent achievement and merit of the highest degree in service to Australia or to humanity at large. Professor Gardner is appointed an AC for her eminent service to tertiary education through leadership and innovation in teaching and learning, research and financial sustainability.

The only Victorian appointed an AC in this year’s Australia Day Honours, Professor Gardner is the fourth Monash Vice-Chancellor to receive this prestigious recognition. In 2007, she was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) in recognition of her service to tertiary education, particularly in the areas of university governance and gender equity, and to industrial relations in Queensland.
