Chief Operating Officer Update

Published: Wednesday 28th May 2014

Welcome to the first edition of the University’s new all-staff bulletin. Released every Tuesday and Thursday, this marks a new era in our approach to internal communications.

As many of you voiced in the Service Matters survey, there is a need to review and consolidate electronic communications that are sent to staff across the University. With the ever-increasing amount of email traffic we are all experiencing, it has become harder to prioritise and filter through messages. We hope that this bulletin will serve to alleviate some of that email traffic for you, and provide a succinct and informative summary of the major events, news, updates and training and development opportunities across the campuses.

I invite everyone to engage with the bulletin and supply news from your respective areas for the upcoming issues. Stories can be submitted via this form.

In addition to the new bulletin, we have launched a new staff newsroom site today. Here, you can filter news by campus, as well as view the national news stories; access Mass times; see the jobs that are available at ACU; and view the courses and training that are on offer. All news submitted to the bulletin will feature in the staff newsroom.

We look forward to your feedback on the bulletin and the staff newsroom site. Please send it through to

Dr Stephen Weller
