It is a privilege to lead this dynamic, world-class university. I look forward to building on our achievements from 2017 and continuing the task of nurturing and supporting our great staff and students.

Happy New Year to you all. As we celebrate the start of 2018, I especially want to welcome all our students to campus as they begin or continue their UWA journey.
This year promises to be dynamic and productive; I know there will be many new initiatives and achievements to celebrate as we progress through the year and I look forward to sharing these with you.

Good afternoon. Perth’s CBD was filled with song on Friday night when around 1000 singers and musicians, many from UWA, gathered to raise awareness of homelessness in Western Australia. This is an example of how universities can bring a community together and offer a voice to important issues; congratulations to Professor Alan Lourens and the Conservatorium of Music for bringing this issue forward in such an engaging way.
