It’s the University’s current practice that staff work three state public holidays (Labour Day, WA Day and Queen’s Birthday) during the year, which are then taken in-lieu over the Christmas close-down period.
However, following staff feedback that working on these days impacts work-life balance and the opportunity to take regular breaks throughout the year, along with the challenges of public transport options and childcare accessibility, the University would like to propose the following changes:
You are invited to join the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) at the Government House Ballroom for a program of celebrated works by Schubert and Shostakovich, complemented by the world premiere of a work by Western Australian composer and UWA Conservatorium of Music lecturer James Ledger.
UWA’s Global Medical Program has been named as a finalist in the 2018 WA Industry and Export Awards. The awards program provides support and encouragement the state’s most innovative and forward-thinking organisations.
Following the recent competitive Expression of Interest for the interim role of Pro Vice Chancellor, International we can advise that Anu Rammohan, Yinong Liu, and Minghao Zheng have agreed to collectively act in the role of PVC International over the coming months.
They will be co-located in the Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor International and for contact please email: [email protected].
UWA’s Africa Research & Engagement Centre (AfREC) has hit the ground running after last week’s launch. A number of ambassadors, high commissioners and vice-chancellors were at the AfREC launch and have already pursued direct engagement with the Centre.
Graduation ceremonies for semester two will be held from 11-15 December 2018.
The change in date from March 2019 to December 2018 enables many students to graduate closer to their completion of studies and, for some students, means that they will be able to attend their ceremonies when previously they may not have.
UWA will partner with leading Australian and European institutions to unlock two of the most compelling mysteries in contemporary physics.
The University will support the operations of the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) in New South Wales and the European Southern Observatory’s 4 Metre Optical Spectroscopic Telescope (4MOST) in northern Chile, in their investigations into the galaxy distribution.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) portfolio is currently working on a distinctive Student Experience Strategy (2019 – 2021) that complements UWA student engagement with teaching and research. The strategy recognises that the student experience means different things to students at different stages of their UWA journey, and engages with different parts of the University throughout their degree. It articulates a transformative, inclusive and student-centred experience that exceeds the expectations of students.
