Kiwis Climb Ranks at Oxford
Julie Maxton will join former Auckland University colleague John Hood at Oxford University next year, as the institution’s first ever female registrar. The 550 year old post is similar to that of a company secretary, with its key focus being the implementation of university policy. “She brings with her enormous experience, academically, administratively and legally,” says Vice Chancellor John Hood of Maxton. “These qualities make her well equipped to play a crucial role in enabling the university to deliver its mission of international excellence at a time of increasing global competitiveness.” Maxton is currently professor and dean of law at Auckland University.
