Honorary life membership was conferred upon Professor Ingrid Moses in recognition of her long and distinguished service to the Society and in recognition of her outstanding commitment to the improvement of teaching and learning and the quality of academic work in higher education.

Ingrid served on the Executive for ten years, from 1981 to 1990, and convened the Conference of 1983. She was Secretary from 1982 to 1985 and editor of Higher Education Research and Development, the Society's journal, from 1986 to 1990.

Professor Moses' publication record in the field of higher education is nothing short of stunning. To note HERDSA contributions alone, she wrote Green Guide No. 3 Supervising Postgraduates in 1985, Green Guide No. 9 Heading a Department (with Ernest Roe) in 1989, edited Research and Development in Higher Education Volume 6 in 1983 and edited Higher Education in the Late Twentieth Century: Reflections on a Changing System. A Festschrift for Ernest Roe in 1990. These publications are 'just the tip of the iceberg'. 

While recognising HERDSA as a very important professional home for her while working in academic development, Professor Moses has since moved into Senior Executive roles. She served as the first Chair of the Australian Government Committee for University Teaching and Staff Development, was Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Canberra, and later held the position of Vice-Chancellor of The University of New England.

Internationally, Professor Moses has been re-elected for a second term as the Chair of the Council of the United Nations University, an institution developed in 1969 to promote international scholarly cooperation, undertake problem-oriented multidisciplinary research on urgent global concerns, and to strengthen research and training in developing countries.
