The In2Uni Program significantly contributes to the University of Wollongong s commitment to widening participation to higher education for students from diverse backgrounds. 214 has seen a significant commitment to the University of Wollongong s regional communities with Outreach Officers being employed in Batemans Bay, Bega, Shoalhaven and Southern Highlands to provide contextualised outreach and support to local school students. Increased investment has also been placed into Year 12 students from our local schools in 214, with the launch of the Summer Master Classes and University Preparation Program to provide students with tangible pathways to higher education. The results from our Year 12 students in 214 have exceeded expectations, with 93% of students who completed the Year 12 University Preparation Program receiving university admission offers. The involvement of current university students, who have attended our local schools as In2Uni Mentors, has significantly increased over the last four years. The journeys shared by these mentors, together with their enthusiasm and passion for working with local school students are transforming the lives of students in our local community. The partnerships that have been developed through the In2Uni Program with local schools and education authorities and the richness that students from our local schools bring to our university environment is invaluable to the University of Wollongong. I would like to personally thank all of the schools, principals, teachers and parents for working so closely with us in 214. We look forward to continuing our partnerships with you in 215. We are committed to driving the In2Uni Program forward and continuing to support our local school students to remain connected with education and achieving their career goals. Professor Eeva Leinonen Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) University of Wollongong

We will achieve this by: 1. Working collaboratively with our internal and external stakeholders to develop programs that build capacity and provide tangible opportunities for individuals from all backgrounds 2. Increasing participation in higher education for individuals from all backgrounds to enrich our local communities 3. Connecting with individuals and communities to foster a culture of lifelong learning through aspiration, access, transition and support programs. WHAT IS IN2UNI? In2Uni is a partnership between the University of Wollongong, Department of Education & Communities (DEC NSW) and the Catholic Education Office (CEO) Wollongong and Goulburn/Canberra that engages with individuals in targeted schools and communities to build their awareness and aspirations toward higher education and to provide them with the knowledge and skills to get there. At the University of Wollongong, we understand that the journey to what you want to be when you grow up can take individuals in many directions. That s why our programs start working with students early, in year one, and continues to support individuals through high school, vocational pathways and to ensure their successful journey to higher education. Our focus is on lifelong learning and engagement with education, whilst providing tangible outcomes for individuals. That s why we not only offer individuals with university preparation programs, but also vocational pathways to encourage them to remain connected with education.

5 STUDENT & MENTOR EXPERIENCES IN2UNI UNIVERSITY PREPARATION PROGRAM STUDENT 214 HECATE JERRETT CORRIMAL HIGH SCHOOL Successful entry into a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts & Design) and Creative Arts (Creative Writing) I never really considered going on to university but art has always been a passion of mine. My high school experience was not the best, I didn t really enjoy school. My involvement with UPP was great, it is a really helpful program. The experience has definitely helped me prepare for university. I believe I did well in my exams because of it (UPP). Without the program I probably never would have gained an interview. I am already recommending the program to other students! I m now going to uni to follow my life s passion - art. IN2UNI SUMMER MASTER CLASS STUDENT 213 ANGELI JAMMAL WARRAWONG HIGH SCHOOL In2Uni Mentor 214 Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Law University of Wollongong University has always been my main goal, it was heavily encouraged and both discouraged at the same time. I think the In2Uni Summer Master Class really was the big turning point for me. Just being on campus triggered the notion of how badly I did want to end up here and the constant reassurance from the program that I could make it. I wanted to make my family proud, and proving to everyone that told me I couldn t do it that they were wrong, was worth it! I am sure I wouldn t be here having completed my first year of law school without it. As this was a life changing opportunity for me, I decided to apply for a position with such a great and motivated team as I wanted to help students just like me realise how great they are and that they can achieve anything through encouraging them and tutoring them the way I was, by the brilliant In2Uni mentors. In2Uni is a program that makes the university itself proud, the things the program aims to do and the opportunities it creates for these students is impeccable. IN2UNI ANNUAL REPORT 214 : 5
