Uni Wollongong’s civilised new website

Its crisp, clean and includes Ramsay western civ degree details

The University of Wollongong has a new website, big on branding and way different from the directories with which some universities still present themselves to the world.

It’s clean, crisp and certainly impresses UoW dean of law, humanities and the arts, Theo Farrell, who describes it as, “pretty darn snazzy”. Praise indeed.

And yes, the university’s 2020 degree funded by the Ramsay Western Civilisation Centre, is on the site.

But not for long if the campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union has anything to do with it. The union is taking legal action, claiming management approval of the Ramsay degree breaches university rules. The matter is listed for Supreme Court mention on July 1, when a trial date is expected to be set.

The union also continues its grass-root campaign running talks with different takes on western civ on the nights of Ramsay Centre lectures in Sydney, (next events for both are on Tuesday).
