We share profile stories and videos of individuals highlighting the innovation and impact of our high-achieving alumni all over the world.


Dynamic Duo

Meet Michael and Natalie Chapman. Despite having two very different careers, the couple share a deep passion and accomplishment in their work.

Set up for success

A BlueScope cadetship sent Deborah De Santis on a pathway to become a business leader in the Illawarra.

Life’s circles

When Zachary Bennett-Brook and his partner Tara Burrows decided to marry in spring last year they weren’t going to let a pandemic dampen proceedings.

Double Vision

Amy and Beth Glancey are a formidable force. The identical twins share far more than a birthdate and mirror-image DNA – both are articulate, insightful communicators, positively crackling with energy, ambition and the confidence to achieve anything they set their minds to.

The unseen epidemic

It may happen behind closed doors, but Illawarra Women’s Health Centre General Manager Sally Stevenson AM wants it to be known that domestic and family violence is occurring in epidemic proportions.

In her words

A digital revolution unfolds, as survivors of sexual assault make their voices heard.

Celebrating diversity

When Aurora Green arrived at UOW last year from country NSW to begin her Bachelor of Social Work, no one knew she was transgender.

Fashion forward

There’s no denying our alumni have style. Meet two UOW graduates making their mark in high fashion on a national and global scale.

Born of Steel

If it wasn’t for the vision and generosity of the Illawarra community, who united to support the creation of a place of higher learning in their region, the University of Wollongong would not be the thriving world-class institution it is today.
