UWS honours its industry partners
The University of Western Sydney has recognised the outstanding contributions of its community, industry and government partners at its annual University Awards ceremony.
On Friday 11 December, at a special Parramatta campus ceremony, Partnership Awards were presented to private companies, educational organisations, local government, community groups and individual supporters.
UWS Vice-Chancellor, Professor Janice Reid, says the University is fortunate to have the ongoing support of a diverse range of organisations and individuals.
"Every year, the University's industry partners make a profound difference to the education of UWS students, as well as to the development of the region of Greater Western Sydney," says Professor Reid.
"The Partnership Awards are a way to express the University's gratitude to these organisations and individuals and to nurture positive relationships into the future."
Industry partners were recognised for their various contributions including: workplace placement programs; research collaborations; education partnerships, schools engagement and Indigenous student mentoring programs; and the provision of scholarship opportunities.
Partners were also recognised for their work within the Greater Western Sydney community, including: work to improve the use of hospital resources; the coordination of sexual health programs; contributions to the wellbeing of migrants and refugees; and campaigning for a local AFL team in the GWS region.
