|Vice-Chancellor of the University of Otago|
|Assumed office |
Vada Harlene Hayne
|Alma mater||Colorado College (B.A.)|
Rutgers University (M.A., Ph.D)
|Occupation||Academic administrator, psychologist|
She was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand in 2002, and is also a fellow of the American Psychological Society. She is the first female Vice-Chancellor of the University of Otago, and assumed the role in 2011.
Born in Oklahoma and raised in Colorado, Hayne attended Colorado College, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, and Rutgers University, from where she graduated MS and PhD. She spent three years as a post-doctoral fellow at Princeton University, and moved to New Zealand in 1992 to join the University of Otago as a lecturer in the Psychology Department. She served on the Academic Council of the Royal Society of New Zealand, the Marsden Fund Council, and the New Zealand National Science Panel. She is an associate editor of Psychological Review and of the New Zealand Journal of Psychology.
Hayne is leading researcher in memory development in infants, children, adolescents and adults and her work has been cited in legal proceedings both nationally and internationally.
Hayne's tenure as Vice-Chancellor has been marred by controversy in recent years, especially regarding cuts to the university's humanities department. In 2017, she was accused of intimidating behavior surrounding the 16 full-time equivalent jobs which were cut in the department and was once again at the center of controversy more recently when the decision was made to cut the Art History program in 2018, where she was the deciding vote.
