Welcome to UOW's flagship magazine, The Stand.

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.

Baxter's Origin Story

In the dawn of time, around 2000 to 2007, there lived a Muscovy Drake in the kingdom of UOW. This duck, unlike his fellow ducks who still to this day attempt their raid on Subway, took pleasure in terrorising the staff and students of UOW. He was known as the UOW Evil Duck.
