Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. It is an enormous privilege to act as Vice-Chancellor while the international search for Professor Paul Johnson’s successor is underway.  
I know 2016 has had many challenges, and we still have a lot of important work to complete, including finalising and implementing our new academic and professional services structures. I ask for your continuing support as the year comes to a close and we conclude this work together. May I take this opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude for your engagement and all the hard work you have done.
I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge Paul’s service to the University. Paul has led the University for nearly 5 years, and during a period of significant change and many challenges.  I am sure you will join me in wishing him and his family all the very best.


Prof. Dawn Freshwater
Acting Vice-Chancellor

Forward Focus

Whether you like to exercise or not, it’s hard to deny the benefits of being active.

Not only is regular activity beneficial for our physical health, but UWA Health and Wellbeing Officer Kirrily Robson is spreading the word that our mental health can also be positively impacted.

Around Campus

Meet Richard O'Halloran, UWA's 102nd Rhodes Scholarship winner.
