The University of Western Australian congratulates the Prime Minister on today’s announcement of the National Innovation and Science Agenda and is committed to working with the Federal Government to turn the plan into reality.
I, like I am sure each of you, was disturbed to learn of news over the weekend that a pig’s head was found in the bathroom of University’s Muslim Prayer Room. One of our PhD students made the discovery as he was preparing for his regular prayers on Sunday.
September is a special month at UWA: graduation season. A time for us to reflect on our graduating students' contribution to the University, to celebrate their achievements, and to wish them well as they embark on their future endeavours.
It is with great pleasure that I welcome our new Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor Dawn Freshwater to the University. Dawn joined us at the start of the month and will be responsible for leading organisational change and academic planning and performance.
