VICE-CHANCELLOR’S AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN SUPERVISION
CANDIDATE


"There's a quotation from the 19th century philosopher, John Stuart Mill that really resonates with me, and he said something along the lines of "the object of universities is not to make skillful physicians or lawyers or engineers or whatever the case may be. The object of universities is to make competent and cultivated human beings." "A/Prof Elizabeth Rieger
"Psychosocial support is imperative in assisting students to become outstanding researchers, but it's also obviously really important in terms of enhancing student wellbeing. And that's an essential outcome in itself, given the concerning high rates of psychological distress that university students globally experience, including here in Australia."A/Prof Elizabeth Rieger
