New Year’s Honours in Tertiary Education 2013

January 3rd 2013 at 8:11am, By Dave Guerin

ED Blog regularly covers the honours lists to identify those involved in tertiary education. The 2013 New Year’s Honours recipients with a tertiary education link are listed below. Congrats to those that have regularly come up in ED Blog’s media coverage, such as Profs Roger Field, Linda Tuhiwai Smith and Ian Pool, and to John Morris, who I have worked with before.

We’ll update this post on the site as we receive further information – some PR people have rightfully been taking holidays and will surely put out some congratulatory media releases when they get back.

(By the way, someone did hack into our system on 30 December and published a post titled “HACKED”. That security hole has been closed and all the person was able to do was publish a post. They had no access to any of your details. Sorry for the hassle.)
