Soil science researchers from The University of Western Australia and the Department of Agriculture and Food Western Australia (DAFWA) have combined their scientific and research capabilities to develop the long-term future of soil science in Western Australia.
Local artist Matthew McAlpine unveiled his mural on the ground floor of the Reid Library last week. Commissioned to celebrate the opening of the new floor, the University Library, in conjunction with the UWA Cultural Precinct, invited five artists to imagine how they would transform the wall into a piece of art. The UWA community was then invited to vote for their favourite submission.
Matthew’s maquette, Godroo/Goodamiorup/Gurndanulup/Matilda Bay was chosen as the most popular idea by students, staff, alumni and visitors.
The Renewal Project is now in the next phase with formal consultation until 7October as we work through finalisation of the new staffing structure.
In light of the proposed changes with Renewal, the staff recruitment freeze will be extended until the end of the year. This will allow the University to ensure that all vacant positions are assessed in conjunction with the proposed changes and wherever possible current staff are given the opportunity to be considered for vacant roles that may arise between now and the end of the year.
