The University of Queensland is required to submit reports to the federal government, and other external agencies, on a number of equity and diversity areas. This is so the University can ensure our priorities and initiatives are of high quality, to benchmark our results and to compare our achievement and progress to other Australian universities.

These reports include:

Australian Human Rights Commission- Disability Action Plan

The UQ Disability Action Plan (DAP) is lodged to the Australian Human Rights Commission.
