From 1 January 2016, ECU has implemented a new academic organisational structure in which faculties no longer exist and the university is reorganised into eight schools.
These changes introduce an academic organisational model that will enhance academic performance, create clearer accountabilities and responsibilities, and enhance executive decision making.
While senior and other staffing appointments have already been made, changes to school web pages will progressively be made in the first half of 2016. For some schools these will be significant, while for others this will be minimal.
The new academic organisational structure will feature the following eight schools:
Web pages aren’t expected to change significantly, if at all, for these schools:
This table provides interim links to ‘old’ school web pages, and shows where some of this content will be found on the new school web pages.

The Faculty of Regional Professional Studies will no longer exist. The Dean, South West Campus will continue to lead the campus and provide stakeholder engagement and project activities in the region. Academic responsibility for Arts, Business, Education, Social Work and Nursing studies at the South West Campus will move to the new schools listed above.
