Ranking incorrectly listed as New York Times[edit]

The "Ranking" section includes New York Times as a ranking, when the ranking is clearly not by NY Times.

The source article, from which the reference (currently on this article) gets its image from, says the ranking is that of Emerging and Trendence, two different consulting firms. The official name for the ranking is Emerging/Trendence Global Employability Ranking.

The entire article makes it clear it isn't done by NY Times:

"The study is meant to give “universities, recruiters and students the most valuable of tools: a road-tested blueprint of where it’s best to study in order to get a job,” Emerging said as it released its findings."

Just because NY Times wrote an article that includes a table from Emerging/Trendence, doesn't make it a NY Times ranking. As far as I know, NY Times does not have a ranking of universities. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Melbourneexpert (talkcontribs) 08:49, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Also see http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/28/world/europe/recruiters-without-borders-companies-scout-globally.html?pagewanted=all for the NY Times' new report of the Emerging/Trendence survey (para 6, 7). Emerging, a consulting company related to education, is who the ranking is carried out for and Trendence does the market research. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Melbourneexpert (talkcontribs) 02:06, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

History and halls of residence[edit]

I'm a representative of Monash University and would like to submit for review some suggested updates to our main Wikipedia entry. We have no intention of manipulating our own entry, however we believe the following additional facts would be beneficial for the entry.


List of former Vice-Chancellors and Chancellors[edit]

We would like to suggest the inclusion of a list of former Vice-Chancellors and Chancellors either on this entry or the 'History of Monash University' entry.

I've included links to the Monash University content as a one potential source to review and verify.

Names of residential halls[edit]

There is also some information on the people our new residential halls have been named after. This could be included under 'History of Monash Clayton Halls of Residences and Colleges' to match the content provided for the other colleges and halls. Again I've provided links to our content simply to suggest facts that can be verified.

Briggs Hall Briggs Hall is named after Mrs Geraldine Briggs AO who had tribal connections to the Yorta Yorta tribe on her mother's side and the Wiradjeri tribe through her father. She was awarded the Order of Australia in 1991 for her work in the Aboriginal community. https://www.monash.edu/accommodation/accommodation/on-campus-options/clayton-urban-community/briggs-hall
