UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the Bloom Lab at St Catherine's and met some of our student entrepreneurs who are successfully making their enterprising ideas a commercial reality. As a University we are committed to driving social and economic development through innovation and our researchers, students and graduates are at the forefront of this.

With the National Innovation and Science Agenda an important federal priority, our State Government has announced it will host a major Innovation Summit in July. At the Summit, industry and research leaders will help design a blueprint for the future and we look forward to providing our ideas on how best to position WA as a regional and global innovation centre.

Sincerely,
Professor Paul Johnson
Vice-Chancellor

Renewal Project Update

Over the last few months the Academic Restructure & Service Delivery teams have been discussing potential structures and service delivery options with staff across campus. We would like to share the outcomes of this engagement including an overview of the proposed academic structure and alignment of professional services with you at a series of information sessions in July. The details for these are available on the Renewal Project website.

I also invite you to an Open Forum on 22 July where we will share further information, including the process for feedback and further involvement. This forum will be held from 1pm to 2pm in the Octagon Theatre, I hope to see you there.

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

Forward Focus

A journey into the (sub)urban sexscape

Dr Paul Maginn, Program Coordinator for the Masters of Urban and Regional Planning at the School of Earth and Environment, has always been interested in contentious urban issues.

Dr Paul Maginn

From an academic perspective most of my research has looked into contentious and challenging policy issues.

Dr Paul Maginn

As a 'geographer-planner', Dr Maginn is fundamentally interested in the where, how and why certain land-uses, groups and communities occupy space and the politics and regulations that tend to surround them.

Read more about Dr Maginn's research and award-winning book.
