The University of Notre Dame Australia's Board of Governors has reappointed Professor Celia Hammond for a further five year term as the University's Vice Chancellor.

Professor Hammond succeeded Dr Peter Tannock who served as Vice Chancellor for 16 years.

Deputy Chancellor, Mr Peter Prendiville, said the University's governing body was extremely confident in the Vice Chancellor.

"We are delighted to extend her term for a further period after the significant success of the University under her leadership over the past four years.

"The expansion of both the Sydney and Fremantle campuses, as well as the significant increase in student numbers, is testimony to the management of the senior leadership team led by Professor Hammond."

Professor Hammond said it has been a privilege and honour to hold the position of Vice Chancellor for the last four and a half years.

"I sincerely thank everyone for the passion and commitment shown to this beautiful institution that has enabled it to grow, develop and flourish since its inception," said Professor Hammond.

"I remain humbled to be the current 'steward' of the position of Vice Chancellor."
