A REVIEW of staff structure at CQUniversity could see a number of key positions axed over the coming months.

Rumours persisted yesterday that four of the university's deans had been made redundant but corporate communications director Chris Veraa wouldn't confirm or deny the reports.

The deans believed to be affected are Professor Matthew Marshall (Creative and Performing Arts), Professor Roger March (Marketing and Management), Professor Sue Court (Humanities and Communication) and Assoc. Professor Robert Fisher (Commerce and Law).

"There is a process of change in the higher education division," Mr Veraa said.

"The faculties of arts, business, informatics and education were recently amalgamated into one super faculty with a deputy vice-chancellor."

The new super faculty, or Higher Education Division, is headed by Professor Graham Pegg who said the university was undertaking an in-depth review of its Higher Education Division.

"This review is in response to a number of factors, including significant growth in domestic student enrolments, a downturn in international student enrolments, and the introduction of a number of new degree offerings," Professor Pegg said.

"The higher education sector is rapidly evolving and CQUniversity needs to ensure its academic workforce and structure is appropriate for current and future needs."
