Inspiring the women of the future

What does an ageing population mean for Australia?

We bring to life subjects that illustrate the impact UOW’s teaching, research and graduates make in the world.
The Stand exists to unlock the knowledge and expertise inside the University of Wollongong (UOW), telling stories about our people and their accomplishments that inform, educate and inspire. This magazine was born out of a renewed sense of place, purpose and values that will guide the University in fulfilling its role in exploring how to resolve society’s large and complex social, environmental and economic challenges.
We believe education is one of the most powerful transformative forces on communities and individuals. It opens minds and helps people find purpose, meaning – and solutions for the world’s most pressing challenges.
This is our unified story – a story that draws on our past, understands the present, and looks to the future.
A different kind of network
Kristen Patchett, Antonia McInnes, and Natalie Piucco met on their very first day of study at UOW. Eight years later–as the three best friends reach new heights in their respective careers–they take time to reflect on how they’ve each helped each other along the way.
A UOW love story
Tony Okely and Mylie Goodhew both enrolled in the exact same UOW course in the exact same year. Thirty years later, the husband and wife have some advice for you.
More than fun and games
Ashleigh and Grant Neill met while balancing education degrees and jobs at a South Coast theme park. Seventeen years later, the husband and wife have built an acclaimed business that is raising the bar for children’s care—while they raise their own family in the process.

UOW campus as major movie franchises
It looked straight out of a major Hollywood movie, and I was walking the set. As the years passed, the wonder that came with exploring the campus never faded. How could it when it feels like the very ground beneath me was puzzled together from all my favourite movies. There is movie magic all over the campus and I’m about to give you the Fast and Furious tour.
