UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. Exams are over for another semester, which means many of our staff are busy finalising students’ marks. It’s a stressful time, and I sincerely thank everyone for their hard work and characteristic resilience.

This week, the University’s Senior Leadership Group – myself, the Deans and the Executive – are meeting for three days of strategic planning. As you know, the Higher Education sector continues to undergo great change both in Australia and internationally. UWA, like all universities, faces significant disruption. We are using this time to debate how best to address these challenges and agree on the strategic priorities for the University.

I look forward to sharing the outcomes of our discussions with you soon.

Sincerely,
Professor Paul Johnson
Vice-Chancellor

UWA student athletes take on world’s best at 2015 Summer Universiade

Badminton has opened a lot of doors for UWA law student, Elliott Clutterbuck. Elliott first picked up a racquet at the age of nine, inspired by his mother who played at a competitive level in England. Now he is among nine UWA students have been selected to represent Australia as part of the Uniroos team at the 28th Summer Universiade in Gwangju, Korea, from 3 to 14 July 2015.

I’m most excited about experiencing the atmosphere of a Summer Universiade. I’ve heard it’s incomparable.

The Summer Universiade, also known as World University Games, is a sporting and cultural festival, staged every two years with recorded figures of over 10,000 participants in 2013 from more than 150 countries. It is broadcast by more than 100 TV channels globally, and is second only in size to the Olympic Games.
