CMC Media Statement — University of Queensland matter — 09.12.2011

The Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC), in line with its statutory responsibility to oversight allegations of misconduct in Queensland’s public sector, has been closely monitoring the University of Queensland’s handling of a matter involving the improper offering of a place in the University’s 2011 medical program (MBBS).

Under the Crime and Misconduct Act 2001, CEOs of public sector agencies are obliged to forward all complaints of suspected official misconduct to the CMC.

On 4 October 2011, the University of Queensland’s Chancellor referred a complaint to the CMC involving the improper enrolment. The Chancellor also provided the CMC with an investigation report and advised that two senior officers — the Vice Chancellor and Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor — had tendered their resignations.

The CMC has since been involved in ongoing dialogue with the University and has today been formally advised that the Vice Chancellor’s resignation has been brought forward from 1 July 2012 to 13 January 2012.

In line with previous advice, the Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor’s resignation takes effect 31 December 2011.

The now imminent resignations remove the necessity of disciplinary proceedings by the University.

The CMC, however, has not closed its oversight of this matter and continues to engage with the University. For that reason, no further comment is appropriate at this stage.
