UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. It is NAIDOC Week, a time to recognise the contributions of Indigenous Australians to our country. We celebrate and promote this heritage on campus through the Berndt Museum's collection of Aboriginal art and the work carried out by the Centre for Rock-Art Research and Management. We are also committed to helping our Indigenous students reach their full potential with nearly 350 Indigenous students graduating in fields such as medicine, dentistry, engineering, law, and business through the School of Indigenous Studies since 1988.

You may have seen UWA Ocean Institute's Professor Shaun Collin on 60 Minutes last Sunday discussing the effectiveness of the Shark Shield shark deterrent. This important research will help the public make more informed decisions about reducing their risk of encountering a shark. You can read more about this research below.

Sincerely,
Professor Paul Johnson
Vice-Chancellor

Renewal Project Update

As previously advised, the first of four information sessions on the Renewal Project will take place tomorrow. After engaging with staff on the various options throughout the design phase, we are now able to share with you the recommended academic structure and our ideas for a proposed service delivery model. I hope that you are able to attend one of these sessions.

For our colleagues in regional WA and others unable to attend, a video of the information session will be made available to you through next week’s UWA Forward. I know this has been an uncertain time for many staff and I want to thank you all for your continued professionalism, hard work and contribution to the process. I look forward to seeing you at the information sessions.

Sincerely,
Professor Dawn Freshwater
Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Registrar

Brian Haggerty, the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics' (ECM) new Deputy Dean (Community and Engagement) is responsible for encouraging greater engagement and collaboration with industry partners.

Brian Haggerty

Generally, industry is not good at asking the right questions and universities are not good at understanding where their insights and imagination might contribute.

Brian Haggerty

On secondment from Woodside, he's the man for the job with years of Australian and international experience and insight into how industry operates.
