CITY Beach res­i­dent and for­mer Edith Cowan Uni­ver­sity ViceChan­cel­lor Kerry Cox has been ap­pointed an Of­fi­cer of the Or­der of Australia.

Mr Cox was recog­nised in Australia Day honours for his ser­vice to ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion and uni­ver­sity ad­min­is­tra­tion, par­tic­u­larly in lead­er­ship and gov­er­nance roles, and to the com­mu­nity.

He re­tired last year from ECU and was the long­est serv­ing vicechan­cel­lor in Australia.

Be­fore start­ing at ECU in March 2006, he had been vicechan­cel­lor and pres­i­dent of the Uni­ver­sity of Bal­larat for five years. Be­fore that, he held se­nior roles at the Uni­ver­sity of Bal­larat and Flinders Uni­ver­sity.

ECU achieve­ments dur­ing his ten­ure in­cluded re­ceiv­ing five-star rat­ings for six con­sec­u­tive years for teach­ing qual­ity, generic skills and over­all sat­is­fac­tion in the Good Uni­ver­si­ties Guide.

Sasha Morgunovskaya, Ja­son Barrow and Pro­fes­sor Kerry Cox light a balga tree at a farewell cer­e­mony last year.
