Former VC Wilf Malcolm launches book

Date / Time: 1 March 2017

Former Vice-Chancellor Wilf Malcolm returned to the University today to launch the book: Margaret Malcolm: A Pioneer In Educational Leadership. The launch was held at the Wilf Malcolm Institute for Educational Research, the research institute named after Wilf and his major contribution to education.

The book is the life-story of Margaret Malcolm, Wilf's sister, a pioneer advocate in the 1970 and 1980s for the role of women in educational leadership.  It provides an account of the significant events of her life and career, including her appointment in 1982 as the first woman Principal of a Teachers’ College in New Zealand. The book is still very relevant today with a chapter that outlines teaching and change. 

The invitation only event was well attended and included the current Vice-Chancellor Neil Quigley, Faculty of Education Staff and some of Wilf Malcolm's colleagues.
