Stephen is responsible for managing the development of major transnational education (TNE) projects such as overseas campuses, delivery partner operations and international strategic alliances. He works closely with the Principal, Senior Vice-Principal, Vice-Principal Internationalisation and Dean for Transnational Education to oversee the implementation of the TNE strand of the University's international strategy, leading the transformation of initial thoughts of strategic transnational opportunities into operational realities.
