Murdoch appoints new Faculty Dean

Murdoch University has appointed Professor Rhonda Marriott as Faculty Dean, Health Sciences.

Six new Faculty Dean positions have been created as part of Murdoch University’s move towards a more efficient and streamlined management process.

Professor Marriott was previously the School Dean and Professor of Nursing at Murdoch University's Peel campus.

 “I look forward to working with staff and stakeholders to further enhance the Faculty’s contributions in our areas of strength for the benefit of Murdoch and those of our wider, borderless community,” Professor Marriott said.

Professor Marriott was the first Indigenous Dean of a university School of Nursing in Australia and was recently named Indigenous Nurse/Midwife of the Year by the Nurses and Midwives Board of Western Australia.

Under her leadership, the School of Nursing at Peel regional campus has built a strong research profile, developed high quality courses and innovative alternative entry pathways, and nurtured partnerships in the region.

The Faculty of Health Sciences has five Schools with staff who are acknowledged leaders in their fields teaching a range of professional programs including Chiropractic and Sports Science, Nursing, Pharmacy, Psychology, and Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences.
