Kit Wise takes RMIT interim Dean of Art role

DDCA Board member Professor Kit Wise will take up the role of interim Dean for the School of Arts for nine months as Professor Julian Goddard, also a DDCA Board member, moves to a college-wide role in RMIT’s Cultural Engagement scheme.

Pro Vice Chancellor Paul Gough acknowledged Professor Wise’s extensive experience in senior leadership roles over the last ten years at the University of Tasmania and Monash University - including as Director and Head of the School of Creative Arts and Interim Director of the Creative Exchange Institute at UTAS; and, Acting Head of Art and Associate Dean Education at Monash.

Professor Gough said “Kit has had a longstanding engagement with the creative industries of Melbourne through numerous professional engagements with individuals and institutions across Victoria; and through his gallery, Sarah Scout Presents. These have been extended through leadership roles on peak bodies, extensive national and international networks, and a range of interdisciplinary partnerships.”
