UTS Responsible Academic Officers

The following UTS staff have been appointed by the appropriate authority to act as Responsible Academic Officers (RAOs) in their faculty or unit. Deans and directors of centres/institutes do not need to be appointed as an RAO as their role includes RAO responsibilities (in line with Schedule 1, Student Rules).

To apply to be an RAO, or to appoint or terminate a staff member as an RAO, complete the Responsible Academic Officers (RAO) application or termination form (PDF) (Staff Connect).
