Organiser Warrane College, UNSW Sydney

Organiser of Australia's Emerging Leadership Role - The Warrane Lecture 2021

Warrane College is an independent residential college for men affiliated with UNSW Sydney.

Since 1970, Warrane has been a home away from home for thousands of young men studying at university. In the tradition of Oxbridge colleges, Warrane supports the pursuit of academic excellence and all-round development within a community of university students, teachers and researchers.

The home-like environment of the College encourages scholarship, friendship and the development of character. Warrane promotes a wholesome atmosphere that is compatible with the development of good habits.

Twenty-five residents, including two residential tutors, make up each residential unit of the College. Each student belongs to a community which is small enough to be personal yet large enough to offer cultural diversity and an extensive network of friendship and academic support.

Each year more than forty guests from academia, politics, the professions, business and sport address the residents. This fosters the professional and personal aspirations of the residents through contact with people of high professional standing.

The College promotes a large range of academic, cultural, social, spiritual and sporting activities as well as community projects to give each resident an opportunity for personal growth.

Warrane College is a project of Education Development Association, a not-for-profit company and a registered charity. The spiritual care of the College has been entrusted to Opus Dei, an institution of the Catholic Church.
