UWS Year of Success through Diversity 2013

Equity and Diversity hosted a year long project in 2013, celebrating the strength of diversity at the University and focusing on its importance for the success in research, teaching and learning. Part of these celebrations were three Community Dinners to strengthen the link between the University and the community as well as provide an opportunity for cultural exchange between the University and targeted Culturally And Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities.
