An advancement journey

While planning this issue for you – our readers – we were conscious that it has been a year of transformation and growth for the University of Wollongong.

We launched a number of new academic initiatives, including a new 4,000 square metre iAccelerate Centre, an $80 million Molecular Horizons Centre for Molecular and Life Sciences and expanded our operations in Hong Kong, Dubai and South Western Sydney.

We launched a refreshed strategic plan and brand identity and placed a spotlight on the links to all our communities, highlighting our role in the creation of opportunities, new industries and new jobs.

So it is only natural for UOW Outlook Magazine to also undergo a form of transformation and growth of its own. This includes a new design and – most excitingly – a brand new website showcasing extended stories, interviews, videos, galleries and more.

Like previous editions, this issue explores the ideas, insights, opinions and personal journeys of a rich and diverse range of thought leaders who are all connected by UOW.

Catherine Feldhausen spoke to us from Microsoft in Singapore about the importance of women in STEM, while Peter Ivanenza told us about his journey from Wollongong to Wall Street and Nicholas Underhill spoke with fellow alumni to explore diversity in Australian media.

Acclaimed Australian artist and educator Guy Warren AM shared stories from his illustrious 80-year career and we sat down with three influential Aboriginal women to hear them speak about life, passion and purpose.

We hope you enjoy this issue and gain inspiration on staying connected with your University and alumni community.
