Reconciliation at UQ

UQ acknowledges and respects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as First Australians. We value and celebrate the uniqueness of knowledges, cultures, histories and languages that have been created and shared for at least 65,000 years.

Our vision is to build a strong sense of belonging in an inclusive UQ that works respectfully with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, staff and communities in teaching, learning, research and collaboration – embracing and enhancing the best of our nation’s and the world’s diversity.

Reconciliation Action Plan

With the official launch of our 2019–2022 Reconciliation Action Plan, we are in a unique position to work towards addressing the legacies of the past and make a substantial and ongoing contribution to reconciliation by fostering mutually beneficial partnerships and collaboration for shared learning, knowledge, language and culture.

Launching UQ’s Reconciliation Artwork

Quandamooka artists Casey Coolwell and Kyra Mancktelow were commissioned by UQ to create an artwork that inspires and represents reconciliation at UQ. Join us for the unveiling of UQ’s Reconciliation Artwork, followed by light refreshments at one of our three main campuses.
