Uni Hub Spencer Gulf has reached a new milestone, appointing Anita Crisp as its new CEO.

The appointment comes at a time of significant growth, with the organisation gearing up for the new academic year, opening a new campus in Port Augusta and expanding the number of university degrees on offer.

Ms Crisp will split her time between Port Augusta and Port Pirie and comes to the role after six years as Executive Officer with the Spencer Gulf Cities Association, including a recent secondment supporting the Uni Hub as acting CEO.

Uni Hub Spencer Gulf chair, Brenton Vanstone said Ms Crisp’s experience and qualifications were a great fit for the organisation.

“Through her role with Spencer Gulf Cities, Ms Crisp was instrumental in developing the Uni Hub concept in its early days and securing Federal funding to enable its establishment,” he said.

“She has such a strong history with the Uni Hub and a very detailed understanding of just how important this initiative is, not only in providing better access to university, but also in developing the skilled workforce across our region.

“To now have her back within the organisation as the CEO is fantastic. It is a really exciting time for the Uni Hub.”

Anita completed a Bachelor of Applied Science in Natural Resource Management at Roseworthy College and Graduate Diploma in Education at Adelaide University before returning to university study and completing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) by distance education at age 40.

Her experience echoes many country students who embark on online study.

“We have terrible internet service at home which made it difficult to access the compulsory online lectures,” she recalls.

“There were also occasions where it would have been great to have a local tutor to provide a bit of reassurance that I was on the right track.

“In the end I enrolled in a couple of face-to-face subjects and had to drive to Adelaide every week for lectures. This was on top of working full time and having two school-aged kids at home.

“If a facility like Uni Hub had been available back then, it would have made life much easier.”
