Leadership in Education

The education mission of UWA is intrinsic to the purpose of the University. A fundamental way in which the University advances “the prosperity and welfare of the people”, both individually and collectively, is by educating students and producing graduates, who will contribute economically, culturally and socially, and provide leadership to their communities.

The Universities Education Priorities  will continue to focus on progressing the seven priority areas detailed in the UWA Education Futures Vision and the Leadership in Education strategic goals outlined in the Strategic Plan 2014 – 2020.
