Champion of change
UOW alumna Carol Kiernan has been instrumental in achieving equality for women in the Australian Honours by co-founding 'Honour a Woman'.
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.
Burning for a better future
In our rapidly changing climate, last summer's fires are unlikely to be a one-off event. The future health of people and the environment hinges on better understanding and managing the risks.
Healing the land to heal ourselves
When we think of bushfires, the issues of long-term drought and climate change spring to mind. But it seems the problem behind our fires runs much deeper and longer – and is now in short supply.
Finding a pathway to success
When Associate Professor Dr Martina Sanderson-Smith joined UOW as a young science student, she wasn’t clear of the path ahead. But that certainly did not impact her rise through her field to esteemed Senior Research Fellow in the School of Chemistry and Molecular Bioscience, Molecular Horizons.
