A Contrasting Courtship: The Monash Takeover of Chisholm
Rodan, Paul
Australian Universities' Review, v47 n1 p20-21 2004
This article compares the strikingly similar experiences of Monash and Chisholm in Melbourne at the same time. The author states that Roger Scott's account of the abortive ANU/CCAE merger brought back memories of the Monash University/Chisholm Institute of Technology amalgamation, effected around the same time. The outstanding point of difference between the two mergers was that the Chisholm senior management was firmly behind the link with Monash, as were the bulk of the external members of the Chisholm Council. The author concludes that it is undeniable that the Chisholm decision-makers went down a path which ensured, predictably, that the institution is now but a footnote in history. The contrast with the CCAE, where its leader saw as his role the defence and preservation of his institution, and his staff, is both stark and instructive.
