The people who lead Mannix – in governance, staff, student leadership, and volunteer roles – are passionate about making our College community the best it can be. A dedicated, enthusiastic College Council, staff and student leadership team work closely and effectively, alongside the College Foundation, Old Collegians’ Association and various committees, to ensure the ongoing success of the College.
Mannix is led by the Principal, who is the academic and executive head of the College. The Head of College works closely with the Dean of Students & Wellbeing, Dean of Studies & Careers and other professional staff to ensure the smooth day-to-day running of the College.
The Deans work closely with the Student Leadership Team, incorporating Academic Tutors, Senior Residential Advisor and Residential Advisors, and with the Mannix College Student Society Committee, to promote the best all-round student experience.
