Sir Robert Madgwick, UNE's first vice chancellor, knew intrinsically that education is critical to helping people adapt to workplaces and change. Education as key to empowerment is a theme that runs throughout his career.
Madgwick listened and acted: As warden to the New England University College (NEUC) in Armidale, before UNE was formed, he listened to the region — its rural and farming communities — and expanded NEUC's curriculum to include rural science and agricultural economics.
Madgwick was solution-driven: During the post-World War 2 baby boom it was evident Australia needed more teachers to cater to the growing population. Madgwick set up a distance-education teacher-training program from the New England University College in Armidale (Sydney University's rural outpost), for aspiring teachers otherwise restricted from tertiary study because or where they lived.
He was a true champion of distance education for the purpose of empowering society — so everyone has the opportunity to adapt to the challenges of a changing world.
