Staff engagement

At UON, we want our workforce to be connected, engaged and informed. We also want our people to have a voice as we strive to achieve our vision for 2025.


In the increasingly full communications environment that is our workplace, it is important to give thought to the best channel for communicating with UON staff. At UON we offer a range of managed channels to support effective communication with our workforce.

For all enquiries relating to staff communications, contact the Workforce Communications team at staffengagement@newcastle.edu.au. If your story relates to current students, read more about student engagement.
