Impact of Giving

Our annual Impact of Giving publication is a way to acknowledge some of the many gifts that the University receives, and the incredible stories behind them.

These gifts have a significant impact on scholarship and research. You can read the Impact of Giving online as a digital publication below or through our blog Adelaide Impact.

Former scholarship recipient passing opportunity forward

Alastair McEwin

Alastair McEwin was born deaf. He was also, it seems, born to lead. In 1994, he graduated from the University of Adelaide, deeply grateful for the support he'd received through the Sir Charles Bright Scholarship. Now, having risen to the position of Australian Disability Discrimination Commissioner, he's giving others with a disability the same opportunity to 'fly'.
