Professor Arvanitakis is the Dean of Graduate Studies at Western Sydney University (Western). He was responsible for establishing the Academy program at Western Sydney University based on the ‘citizen scholar’ concept he has developed. Professor Arvanitakis has developed a number of innovative approaches to assist ‘at-risk’ students through difficult times. Students’ feedback, and his teaching practices, have resulted in various awards confirming the success of his approach: his naming as Eminent Researcher by the Australian Indian Education Council is just one example.
