Our Story

UNSW’s strategic priorities actively address the challenges we face today – from climate change and renewable energies to lifesaving medical treatments and breakthrough technologies. We aim to make an impact on people’s lives around the world. 

In 2020, UNSW evolved its motto to “Scientia corde mente et manu” – Knowledge by Heart, Mind and Hand. This is more than just a slogan of renewed values and aspirations. It captures the fact that we serve higher purpose, and are committed to serving society through knowledge sharing and new discovery.
