Academic Gongs 2018

26 January 2018

895 Australians  have been recognised with Orders of Australia on Australia Day 2018, 641 In the General Division (basically, civilians). As always, members of the tertiary education sector featured strongly in the honours list, with 119 awards (about 19% in the General Division), particularly in the upper categories.  People associated with the tertiary sector received 11 out of the 16 Companion awards (68%), 27 out of 68 Officer awards  (40%),  62 of 170 Member awards (36%), for 40% of the higher awards (a proportion which has actually increasing considerably over time) .  In the most common category,  Medal of the Order, only 19 of 387 awards were tertiary sector related people (5%). 

Academics obviously have a very high level of nominations and the nominators are obviously, as you would expect, very good at putting together the applications.  Not so women who continue to be under represented with30% of all awards, mainly in the Medal category.   Only a couple of the tertiary sector awards were to people in the VET sector and there weren’t many schhol teachers.  It’s puzzling to many observers that prople on prestigiuos jobs and on generally high incomes (judges and lawyers, professors and doctors) get big gongs for doing their day jobs for a long while punters who give a lifetime’s service in a voluntary capacity (say, in the CWA, the Guides and Scouts, local sporting organisations and charities) get the lesser awards.  You don’t see too many punters above AM.
