UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. Thank you everyone who came along to the Christmas Party on Friday. After a challenging year, it was nice to be able to relax for a few hours and share the company of colleagues.

Thank you also for the response to my End of Year Address last week. I realise it was difficult news to hear, especially so close to the Christmas break. While the Renewal Project is important for our future, it is also important to remember that our day-to-day work continues – particularly as we prepare to welcome a new cohort of students to UWA.

If you have any questions or feedback about the Renewal Project, I encourage you to email [email protected] and a member of the project team will respond in due course. For advice or information on your own personal situation, please contact [email protected].

We have such a wealth of talent on campus, so we are marking the festive season by bringing together some of our best performers for this Christmas Concert.
