In less than 50 years, UOW has become a benchmark for Australia’s new generation of universities; dynamic, innovative and prominent in national and international rankings for the quality of our teaching and research.
As a commitment to a better future has shaped our direction and impact since our inception. In those early days developing the Illawarra and its industries focused our intent and our pioneering spirit was born.
From these origins, we have grown to be a diverse and inclusive civic university, working to solve global challenges and promoting harmony and social cohesion. Our success is the creation of our people and valued partnerships, locally, regionally and internationally. https://youtu.be/gbHeDqOuCEg
"In 2018 a diverse group of over 100 members of the UOW community deeply considered how we could lead and shape our future over the next decade. We developed creative and ambitious ideas to harness the opportunities our changing environment may provide.
We synthesised these ideas into our 2030 and Beyond Green Paper, released in 2018. In 2019 we held two forums with senior staff and Council to build these ideas into core concepts for our future.
We crafted the outcomes of this consultation into this, our 2030 and Beyond White Paper. This White Paper is our strategic intent and it will guide us through the next decade. It will be our constant over this time, steering our direction, providing flexibility for new opportunities and guiding the development of our five-year strategic, education, research, and partnership plans.
The passion, pride and commitment of our people has created our 2030 and beyond aspiration captured in this White Paper. We look forward to a purposeful future."
