UWA reaffirms commitment to international students from China

Wednesday, 10 June 2020

There has been discomforting commentary over the past few days related to international students from China. I reaffirm The University of Western Australia’s commitment to the deeply held values that underpin all we do. We uphold and celebrate diversity, fairness and inclusivity; and we stand resolute in our rejection of racial prejudice and intolerance in any form – always.
