Tamar Valley Leaders Lunch with
Prof. Dominic (Dom) Geraghty
Pro Vice-Chancellor (Launceston)- University of Tasmania

Sustainable Regional Campuses for the North

Professor Dom Geraghty is the University’s Pro Vice-Chancellor (Launceston), driving delivery of the Northern Transformation’s vision and strategic objectives for our city and region.

Originally from Ireland, where he obtained a BSc (Honours) from the National University of Ireland, he completed a PhD at Deakin University in 1988.  Dom moved to the University of Tasmania in 1991, and has become deeply connected with the University and the Launceston region, researching and teaching here for three decades. The first in his family to attend university, Dom is passionate about growing the University’s presence and profile, improving access and increasing educational attainment.

Dom has held a number of senior academic roles at the University, including Acting Head of the Schools of Human Life Sciences (2012), Health Sciences (2016) and Creative Arts and Media (2018-19), Deputy Dean of Graduate Research (2012-17) and Chair of the Academic Senate (2017-18).

As a pharmacologist and enthusiastic science communicator, Dom has presented public lectures on health/drugs of abuse awareness and a frequent ‘guest scientist’ on radio. He has co-authored over 250 research papers, reviews, book chapters and conference presentations.

The $300 million University of Tasmania Northern Transformation Program will see the majority of academic schools and administrative units move from the Newnham Campus to the Inveresk Precinct by semester 1, 2024.  Over the same timeframe, the footprint of the Australian Maritime College will increase to encompass the federally funded Defence and Maritime Innovations and Design Precinct and the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and Environment Tasmania (formerly DPIPWE) will relocate to new and existing buildings at Newnham as the Tasmanian Agricultural Precinct.  Dom’s talk will cover the many initiatives that will ensure the economic, social and environmental sustainability of both the Newnham and Inveresk sites into the future.

Please Note: This is a covid-safe event. Please read all terms and conditions before purchasing your ticket. Face masks must be worn at all times within the venue unless consuming food/beverages.
