Vice-Chancellor Professor Barney Glover says Western Sydney University is well placed to meet this commitment, and joins a small, innovative group of Australian university signatories.
"To recognise staff and student achievements in this area, I am pleased to announce that the Vice-Chancellor's Excellence in University Engagement and Sustainability Award has been extended to include applications that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030," says Professor Glover.
