WHERE DOES STRENGTH COME FROM?
Where does strength come from? It comes from facing up, stepping up and standing up. It comes from taking a stand on things that matter. It comes from brave thinking in the face of society’s most pressing challenges. It comes from stepping outside the norm, and backing each other all the way. And when you find it, you’ll take it with you – wherever you go.
From our initial research and many years of working collaboratively with UOW, we found there was little doubt that the strength of character evident in the Illawarra region would seep into the university’s DNA.
After a thorough period of analysis into this elusive quality, we called it ‘Wollongong Strong’ – an idea that translates to hard work, determination and fearless thinking in the pursuit of our ongoing mission to better society. And no matter where one might then go in the world, or no matter what one does, they can always draw strength from their time at UOW. The unique strength of Wollongong’s people, research and discoveries radiates out into the wider world, causing real world impact.
