The University of Queensland values the strength that diversity and inclusion brings to the University. By practising the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion we seek to create a vibrant and inclusive environment that allows ideas to flourish, people to be empowered and communities to grow. The diversity of our staff and student populations contributes to innovation and excellence in our research, teaching and learning endeavours, and marks UQ as an internationally leading institution.

Our vision is that UQs local and international reputation for diversity and inclusion equals its current standing as a provider of exceptional educational and research opportunities. Diversity and inclusion has strategic oversight by the relevant Senate sub-committee.
