EduCativ Posted June 16, 2020 Share Posted June 16, 2020 The University of Wollongong is a research-intensive university with an outstanding reputation for its learning environments across various disciplines. Our students' commitment is evident in our graduates, who are recognized for their capability, quality, and success in the global workplace. UOW is an international network of campuses and regional learning centers. Together with our partners, we make a healthy and connected presence in our communities. We are a young and vibrant university with undiminished ambitions. We value our research capacity to work on complex interdisciplinary problems. Our spirit of inquiry drives our research and learning environments, and our objective of earning a place in the top 1% of the world's universities. In just 40 years, UOW has become a benchmark for Australia's new generation of universities dynamic, agile, innovative, and prominent in national and international rankings for our teaching and research quality. The University began as an institute for the then the New South Wales University of Technology, Sydney, at a single location in Wollongong. Since gaining independence in 1975, UOW has grown into an international multi-campus University, expanding to occupy two Sydney campuses and five regional campuses and locations in Hong Kong and Dubai. With over 36,000 students, more than 2,400 staff, and an economic impact of around $2 billion in activity annually, UOW is an influential part of its communities and the catalyst for Wollongong's transformation into a University city. Our students and staff come from diverse backgrounds, and we welcome many international students to our campuses each year. They share a culture that respects openness, inclusiveness, collegiality, and diversity. In anticipating the nature of emergent industries and future jobs, we aim to develop ethical, mobile, technologically literate, and ready-for multicultural workplaces. We encourage creative and critical thinking and encourage our students and staff to challenge and cross traditional disciplines' boundaries and create genuinely interdisciplinary partnerships. We have focused our efforts to ensure that the UOW curriculum is intellectually challenging, models critical inquiry and real-world practice, and is delivered in technology-rich and immersive environments. We are a young and vibrant university with a strong sense of who we are and where we are going. Universities have never been more critical to our future. Our universities will play a central role in keeping Australia economically competitive and socially cohesive in a world facing huge and complex social, environmental, and economic challenges. The higher education sector will be at the forefront of shaping new policies and modern society. At the University of Wollongong (UOW), we will continue to offer personalized experiences and unique learning environments. We will develop highly sought-after graduates who have experienced a research-intensive university and an intellectually challenging curriculum. We are committed to generating outstanding research and world-class results. Our objective of earning a place in the top 1% of the world's universities creates an opportunity to renew and refresh.
