New manager of student processes 


Charles Darwin University’s (CDU) new manager of Student Processes, Diane Skewes, holds the key to systems and processes for all students across the University.

Diane is well known around CDU as a long term staff member and was part of the team which implemented the student management system, Callista, in November 2003.

Diane will start in the position when the University resumes next year.

‘The role will be challenging,’ Diane says. ‘A review and assessment of the current processes for student administration is an important role, both for the higher education and vocational and technical education (VTE) sectors. Callista currently manages all admissions, enrolment, examinations and graduations.’

‘The University’s priority is the students,’ Diane added, ‘and we are keen to see that student data across the University is accurate, available and of the highest quality. We will be striving for continuous improvement in our processes over the next 12 months.’

The role will also involve staff training on the effective use of all student administration processes.

Diane’s expertise in student systems will help her review processes to ensure maximum effectiveness in the University’s delivery of services and its relationship with students.

Diane is also currently studying a business degree and eventually hopes to major in management.
