Good morning. This week hails a cultural celebration on campus with both the Perth International Arts Festival and the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery’s 2017 season openings.
Founded by UWA in 1953, PIAF is a tremendous source of pride for our University and is now WA’s premier cultural event. Over the next month the campus and other venues across Perth will come to life with world class musicians, writers and actors all showcasing their talents for us to enjoy.
Good morning. At the start of a new year and early in my term as Vice-Chancellor, it is indeed a privilege to be able to share with you some exciting plans for the launch of an international academic recruitment campaign.
The University of Western Australia has today joined higher education institutions and colleagues from across the world to express concern about the impact of the new US executive order on the free exchange of students, academics and researchers between Australia and the United States of America.
Good morning. Welcome to the first edition of UWA Forward for 2017 and my first as Vice-Chancellor. As I said last week it is an absolute privilege to be appointed UWA’s 18th VC and it will be wonderful to work with you to build on last year’s achievements.
I am writing to let you know that, after a great deal of reflection, I informed the Chancellor over the weekend of my decision to decline the offer from Senate to renew my contract for a further five-year term; I therefore intend to retire from the Vice-Chancellorship at the end of this year.
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.
