Celebrating 125 Years

125 Stories

Do you have a story to tell?

To celebrate the 125 years of our University's rich history, we want you - our students, our alumni, our staff and our community - to share your story.

As part of our celebrations, the 125 Stories project will identify 125 stories about our community and life, our academic and research achievements and our roles and achievements within our State, the nation and around the world. The stories will be included in a dedicated website, which will also include photos, video and memorabilia about our University.

The 125 Stories project team is seeking material from you about the University's development and achievements, our connections with our local communities, with Tasmania and the world, and our people and their experiences. 

Some of the key themes the stories will reflect include:

  • University life - including our students and staff, accommodation, publications, sporting clubs, societies and the TUU
  • Learning and teaching at our University
  • Our Institutes, Faculties, Schools and Divisions 
  • Our University's academic, political and economic impact
  • Our University and our migrant community
  • Our University and the environment
  • The impact of our research
  • Our University and maritime, marine and Antarctic research
  • Our disciplines and distinguished alumni
  • Internationalisation 
  • Our Rhodes Scholars
  • The Arts and our University
  • The Foundation and philanthropy

Do you have a story to tell about your time at the University of Tasmania, its Institutes or associated organisations? You may have photos of the University from when it was being built, or from your work or student days that you would like to share. Perhaps you have special memories of what it was like to live, study, research and work here? Why not share it with us, or perhaps collaborate with others to tell us about your experiences?

If you have a story to tell, video or images to share, please contact us or fill in the form below.
