Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good afternoon. 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.

As we embark on a busy year the newly-formed Executive and I will meet this week to discuss the University’s strategic future. I look forward to talking with you more about our 2017 priorities and hearing your thoughts at an upcoming Town Hall to be held in February. By working together towards the same goals we can all contribute to UWA’s future success.

Finally, I’m pleased to announce that Professor Grady Venville will be the acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education while we undertake an international search for a permanent appointment.

Around Campus

Meet Emily Lester. Emily is a second-year PhD student in marine biology and while she grew up in a land-locked part of the UK she always loved scuba diving.

After finishing her undergraduate degree she moved to Perth to study marine biology where she had the opportunity to study whale sharks in Ningaloo. Now she's hooked!

Did you know....

Students received their offers for 2017 last week! Not long until we will welcome lots of new faces to campus as they embark on a challenging, fun and exciting year of study at UWA.
