Dr Halliday (pictured), who was 53, served as an external member of Council from June 2009 to February 2013 and was also a member of the Council’s Audit Committee and Governance Committee.
Flinders Deputy Chancellor and Adelaide businesswoman Ms Leonie Clyne said Dr Halliday was an enthusiastic supporter of Flinders who loved the ethos of the University.
“Flinders truly benefited from Bronwyn’s specialist knowledge and experience in corporate governance during her time on the Governance Committee, and her interest in risk and change management was very timely for the University.
“Bronwyn’s dedication, and the time she gave to education and the arts, will be greatly missed by many within the University and beyond,” Ms Clyne said.
Flinders Vice-Chancellor Professor Michael Barber said Dr Halliday was a well-respected member of Council and its committees.
“She was generous in her contribution and brought a strategic perspective to the University. Our thoughts are with her family and friends,” Professor Barber said.
Dr Halliday, who was educated in Adelaide and the US and held a doctorate business administration, worked at a senior level in both public and private sectors, holding positions as National Director with Ernst and Young, as Director of the State Library of South Australia and as Executive Director of Planning SA, the State government’s land use planning agency.
In addition to her role on Council at Flinders, she served on the boards of Minda, National Pharmacies, the Australian Institute of Company Directors, the State Theatre Company of South Australia and St Ann’s College.
