Prize for Excellence established in honour of Professor Alec Cameron
Thursday, 13 December 2012
The Professor Alec Cameron Prize for Excellence has been established to reward students of the highest calibre, in honour of the departing inaugural Dean of the Australian School of Business (ASB), Professor Alec Cameron. He has accepted the position of Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) at the University of Western Australia. The award was announced at Professor Cameron's farewell reception last week.
The award recognises the outstanding contributions Professor Cameron has made to ASB and UNSW over the past nine years. He was appointed as the inaugural Dean of ASB in August 2006 and previously held the position of Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Resources and Infrastructure) at UNSW.
ASB has garnered the reputation as Australia's leading business school and achieved significant growth in research performance, teaching and external engagement. The achievements include a drive for increased research, which has seen numerous awards; and a student body that has grown to over 13,000 students, whilst maintaining the highest entry standards and cut-off scores for business programs in Australia.
Australian School of Business staff, led by UNSW Pro Vice-Chancellor Fred Hilmer, have made contributions toward the prize to support undergraduate business students showing the most potential.
