UWA has a vision of achieving international excellence and of being counted among the top 50 universities in the world by 2050.
UWA also has ‘an unrelenting and comprehensive commitment to a high quality student experience both within and beyond the classroom.’ So how are we going? Have your say!
The Vice-Chancellor, Paul Johnson, has launched a review of the UWA Orientation program and we need your feedback and ideas. There are several ways to share your views and get involved:
The review will look at the official University orientation (such as, campus tours, the Commencement Ceremony, Guild O-Day) and the transition events (for example, the UniSkills Flying Start, the Bachelor of Philosophy Residential) as well as the welcome events and activities run by the clubs and societies, UWA Sports and the residential colleges.
The most valuable contribution anyone can make is constructive comment.
We all have good ideas so if you wish to give feedback that can lead to improvements:
Written submissions should be received before the close of business on Wednesday 18 July.
The Orientation Review Panel will be meeting with students and staff over three days between Monday 30 July 2012 and Wednesday 1 August 2012 (that’s the first week of second semester) to discuss the UWA Orientation and how it can be improved. The panel is:
You and/or your friend(s) can ask to meet with the whole panel, or just some of them.
Email Deirdre de Souza to make an appointment if you would like to talk with the whole panel or meet confidentially with just two or three of the members and she’ll see what can be done.
All members of the review panel have a duty to ensure that personal information, given in confidence, remains confidential.
Confidential information may include personal information such as a person’s name as well as sensitive information about personal circumstances and events.
No personal information, received in confidence, will be passed to anyone else without the consent of the provider of the information except and unless disclosure is required by a court (or a court order) or required by a statute (that is by law).
The Terms of Reference for this review are also available.
You have a great opportunity to fashion the future. I look forward to reading your thoughts and opinions and, if you would like to meet with the panel, talking through your ideas for a better UWA Orientation.
Grady Venville, Chair, UWA Orientation Panel
