David Jeffries

Honorary Senior Fellow (April 2017)

David Jeffries was named an Honorary Senior Fellow in April 2017 in recognition of his immeasurable contribution to the university.

David has made significant contributions to the positive culture and good governance of USC for more than a decade.

He was a member of the University Council, has chaired the Planning and Resources Committee and held the position of Deputy Chancellor from 2010 to 2015. He provided leadership to the University on numerous building projects and the development of high level strategic plans and budgets. During his time on Council and the Planning and Resources Committee, David was instrumental in the development of our campuses at Gympie, Fraser Coast, South Bank and Moreton Bay.

David’s strong support of USC also extends to students. In 2010, he and his wife, Margie, established the Jalarema Indigenous Scholarship which is awarded annually to Indigenous students to recognise and encourage high academic endeavour at USC.
