Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. Last week our researchers were awarded over $22 million in the final round of 2016 National Health and Medical Research Council funding. In total this year UWA was awarded nearly $33 million in NHMRC funding, which is slightly more than last year. This is a wonderful achievement; well done to all you.

In last week’s UWA Forward you may have read that turnaround times for student applications have been significantly reduced due to work completed by the Admissions team and faculties to redesign processes. This is a fantastic achievement and as many of us head off for the shutdown period next week I want to acknowledge all our staff, including the Admissions team, who will be working through to ensure a positive start to the year for all our students – new and returning.

Around Campus

Did you know...

Uchikake (打ち掛け) are formal kimonos, worn by brides at their weddings. They are traditionally brightly coloured and ornamented, with red as the base colour. The cranes on the above kimono are a symbol of longevity and good fortune.

This kimono was donated by Gary and Wendy Hoffman to Asian Studies in the Social Sciences building.
