Establishment of a university for Tasmanians
Andrew Inglis Clark supported the establishment of the University in Tasmania in 1889. He played a critical role in parliament in fending off a cost-cutting measure that would have stifled it at birth.
From 1901 to 1903 he served as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Tasmania. His tenure was short, for he resigned in 1903 and died four years later.
Andrew Inglis Clark's contribution and legacy continues to be studied, researched and discussed at the Universtiy of Tasmania.
The Andrew Inglis Clark Scholarhip in Law and History honours Clark's contributions to the formation of the Australian Constitution.
