WESFARMERS and the University of Western Australia are joining forces in a new multi-million dollar project to boost the study of Australian history at both tertiary and secondary levels. Wesfarmers' donation of $5 million will go towards establishing a professorial chair in Australian history at UWA. This is the first time that such a position has existed in WA and the first time in Australia that this role has been fully funded privately. The initiative comes as UWA celebrates its centenary year.
