Outlook Magazine is the University of Wollongong’s flagship publication for alumni featuring stories about and by our incredible graduates from around the world.
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.
The year at UOW
The year 2020 at UOW was one of challenges, change, and optimism in the face of crises. The university sector was thrown one of its biggest problems to solve yet, overhauling the delivery of all teaching, learning and working, as the world was forced to adapt to a rapidly evolving way of life.
Resilience under fire
On the evening of 4 January 2020, a fast-moving front of the monstrous Currowan fire – which would ultimately destroy half a million hectares and hundreds of properties over 74 days – tore through New South Wales’ picturesque Kangaroo Valley.
A life-changing gift
It is a gesture that is, as yet, unquantifiable. But the impact on the health of our communities is full of possibility.
Addressing the mega challenges in a changing world
UOW has formed strong international and domestic institutional research collaborations to tackle serious issues impacting our global population, according to Professor Paul Wellings CBE, Vice-Chancellor.
Across the world, UOW alumni continue to connect, collaborate and innovate. With more than 156,000 alumni across the globe and counting, the Alumni Relations Team endeavours to keep in touch with as many of you as possible. We love celebrating your achievements and sharing with you the significant impact UOW researchers are having on our communities.
