Meet our 2020 Alumni Awards winners
Each year, UOW Alumni Awards uncover exceptional alumni who are making a mark in the world. In 2020 we proudly celebrate the achievements of four outstanding winners who are taking great strides in their careers, creating innovation in business, demonstrating professional excellence and having a remarkable impact on society.
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.
Big data, big ideas...
Big ideas always need someone to drive change, according to Professor Glenn Salkeld, Executive Dean, Faculty of the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities.
Making an impact
UOW alumni across the globe are making it their personal mission to tackle some of the world’s most prevalent environmental and societal issues, one United Nations Sustainable Development Goal at a time.
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.
