Simon said he was grateful to receive the honour as a former graduate of the University.

“During my time as a Minister in Government, I am fortunate to have held portfolios that I am extremely passionate about,” Simon said.

“I consider the environment, urban planning and renewable energy initiatives to be particularly important for the ACT as a growing city.

“I have devoted much time to progressing innovative policy, programs and developments which position the Territory as a leader in Australia.

“I am honoured to have been recognised by the University, and I look forward to continuing work in these areas with staff and students in the future.”

Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Design at the University of Canberra, Professor Lyndon Anderson welcomed Mr Corbell’s appointment.

“I’m very pleased that Mr Corbell will be joining the University of Canberra’s extensive community of adjunct professors,” Lyndon said.

“His knowledge and experience in fields such as urban planning, environment and health will benefit our staff and students and help strengthen our teaching and research activities.

“Mr Corbell is a University of Canberra graduate and was one of the first recipients of the University’s Distinguished Alumni Awards in 2001.

“This appointment continues his strong ties with the University and we look forward to working with him.”
