11:00 - PROGRAM - AusAID Connect 2013 : Mentoring AusAID students More Information
As with all international students who come to study at UWA, AusAID students face many challenges. They need to understand local geography, adapt to our cultural and social norms, adjust to a different climate and food and quickly come to terms with their role and responsibility in the UWA community. While the staff in the International Centre provides a comprehensive orientation program, it can still take some time for these students to settle in to their new environment.

The AusAID Connect program was established to provide our AusAID students with the experience of meeting and spending time with a local family. Jointly run by the Alumni Relations office and the International Sponsored Student Unit at UWA, it gives you, as a UWA alumnus, the opportunity to make a positive difference in the life of a student adjusting to being so far from their home, by hosting them at a dinner in your home.

Alumni interested in being involved firstly need to fill out the program registration form and sign the authorisation. We will then review all applicants and match the students with alumni families based on information provided by both parties. As a part of this matching process we may contact you by telephone. Participating alumni will then receive information on the student as well as the country and culture from which they come.

If you are matched with a student you will need to attend a function on Friday, 8 March 2013 which is for all participating alumni, families and students to meet, start to get to know each other and arrange your hosting dinner.

Close of Applications is the 21st of February

The fifth lecture in a series by UWAHS in association with the Convocation of UWA Graduates

The Annual Lecture is the highlight of the Society’s year and we are delighted to welcome Emeritus Professor Reg Appleyard as our guest speaker.

About Emeritus Professor Reg Appleyard

In 2010, a memorandum of understanding was made between The Convocation of UWA Graduates (Convocation) and the UWA Historical Society, each agreeing to abide by the principle of open communication and spirit of collaboration. At its formation, the UWAHS’ objectives included encouraging appreciation of UWA history among staff, students, graduates and the community, promoting and funding UWA projects of an historical nature, organising lecturers and encouraging historical displays.

Reg Appleyard was the inaugural President of UWAHS. He had been a mature age student in economics in the Faculty of Arts from 1950 to 1953. He then obtained MA and PhD degrees at Duke University (North Carolina) and returned to Australia in 1958 where for 10 years he held research appointments in economic demography at the ANU.

In 1968 he returned to UWA as Professor of Economic History, a position he held for 25 years, seventeen of which as head of the Department of Economics. During this period compulsory sections on theory, statistics and history were incorporated into the B.Ec degree. Informal contact was made with outside bodies such as CEDA (Committee for the Economic Development of Australia) and, in due course, formal contact with BHP Billiton, Wesfarmers and Woodside Petroleum. Internal programs were also developed in Japanese Studies, Middle East Studies and Migration and Development.

From the early 1970s Appleyard also became involved with the Geneva-based International Organization for Migration. He consulted many UN and international committees in Europe which, like IOM, were designed to support and assist developing countries. Being based at the University of Western Australia, he made frequent visits to Europe for discussions with officials of these organizations, hence the fly-out, fly-in appellation! Information obtained during those frequent discussions has confirmed significant change, including not only that university education is on the edge of complete change, but that UWA’s student body comprises thousands of international students, many of whom return and retain their links with UWA. About UWAHS Annual Lectures

The UWA Historical Society was launched by the Vice Chancellor Professor Alan Robson in October 2008 to encourage appreciation of University history amongst staff, students, graduates and the community. The inaugural Annual Lecture of the Society in association with Convocation was held in 2009. Guest speakers have included Robert French, Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia, Dr Sue Boyd, former diplomat and President of the Australian Institute of International Affairs (WA Branch), Emeritus Professor Don Watts, Director or WAIT and Vice Chancellor of Curtin University of Technology and Bond University, and Winthrop Professor Cheryl Praeger AM FAA, distinguished mathematician and past president of the Australian Mathematical Society, fellow of the Australian Academy of Science and Australian Research Council Federation, and member of the Order of Australia.
