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.
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.
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.
Reimagining our University for the future
We need to think broadly and longer-term to ensure UOW thrives in a post-COVID environment, according to UOW Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Professor Paul Wellings CBE.
A lesson in appreciation
The 2020 school year began tentatively, with a menacing pandemic in the shadows. It comes to an end, however, on a note of triumph, with a new appreciation for the teachers who united to take on the unprecedented challenge of implementing mass remote-learning during the shutdown. We spoke to the principals of two very different schools on their success strategy.
Preparing for change
That the future is the product of the decisions we make today is a sentiment swirling around the corridors of Australia’s education sector.
