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.
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.
Major philanthropic gift: a milestone in mathematics
As the future of Australia’s job market rapidly changes and maths and science continue to play a transformative role in research and development, UOW has strengthened its capacity to influence and champion progress in these vital areas.
