UOW welcomes new leadership team
In a year that has brought widespread change to our global environment, 2020 also saw major leadership announcements for the University of Wollongong, including the appointment of a new Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor, to help drive the University into the future.
The changing face of medicine
We hear from four medical researchers on the way COVID-19 has affected public health and the future of medicine.
Communicating in a crisis
As a five-year-old, Jake Lapham featured in a home movie with a toy microphone in hand, parroting select words he had heard on the nightly news about a nearby bushfire.
An extraordinary contribution
As the University of Wollongong’s third Chancellor (2009 -2020), Jillian Broadbent AC provided outstanding leadership to the institution over the past 11 years.
Artists as imagineers
In Australia and across the globe, COVID-19 has brought theatres, galleries, music venues, performers, and television and movie productions to the brink. And with the pandemic showing no signs of going away, there are fears that some parts of the arts industry may never recover.
From Arnhem Land to Antarctica
Dr Rhys Harding relishes a challenge. The UOW alumnus has spent the past eight years carving out a career as a doctor in some of the most remote locations in the world. That has meant different things at different points in his life. As a medical student, he spent a year in Broken Hill, becoming exposed to the daily rhythm of practising medicine in the outback New South Wales rural community.
