Leadership and governance

Unleashing the potential of the next generation of leaders


As WA’s first university with a history of teaching and research over 100 years, our founding vision remains stronger than ever.

Today, just as it was when we opened our doors in 1913, our enduring mission is to provide world-class education, research and community engagement for the advancement of the prosperity and welfare of our communities. We seek to create global leaders through our industry-integrated education and world-leading research.

Our leadership, governance and structure are designed to ensure our students receive an experience-oriented and values-led curriculum to enable them to make a positive impact on society, now and into the future.

At UWA, leadership means making a real difference and helping our students seek wisdom, understanding, insight and knowledge, both in the classroom and beyond the books. Wisdom is our shared journey of overcoming the challenges we face together. Join us on this journey.
