UEA is committed to campus investment, including the creation of new learning settings, the enhancement of new learning technology, and the development of tomorrow’s leaders. Many of UEA’s professors and teachers are international experts who are at the forefront of their disciplines. Dr. Michael Wormstone, a specialist in cataract research; Dr. Paul Bernal, a published expert on internet privacy rights; Dr. Eylem Atakav, who is teaching the first Women, Islam, and Media course in the UK; and Professor Matt Hutchings’ work developing novel antibiotics are just a few examples. Importantly, UEA faculty and staff are equally committed to students and their studies as they are to their own research. This means that studies are informed by the most recent thinking and research.
