These individuals are valuable role models in the community and have gone 'above and beyond' in their work or community service:
- Councillor Mark Greenhill, Mayor, Blue Mountains City Council

UWS wishes to offer our graduates all the best for their future endeavours. The power of education can take you places you have never dreamed of - congratulations on taking those first steps with the University of Western Sydney.
