Western Sydney University

Western Sydney University (WSU) is a research institution driven by impact. Our research makes a difference regionally, nationally and globally. We are committed to collaboration with our regional, national and international communities to contribute to their economic, social and environmental well-being.

At WSU excellence in research is the precondition of impact. With research excellence we connect our local and global communities and create world-leading impact. WSU is student-centred and research-led. This research plan frames the WSU vision of engaged research across three key dimensions: futures, impact and capacity. These dimensions are interconnected and mutually reinforcing.

To achieve our objectives the University’s teaching and research capacities must also be interconnected and mutually reinforcing. The University’s research themes are:

  • Urban Living and Society: People, Culture, Economy and Built Environment
  • Health and Well-being: Translation, Service and Innovation
  • Education: Access, Equity, Pathways, and Aspirational Change
  • Environmental Sustainability: Climate, Agriculture and Resources
