Event Description

Full Description:
Guided by a steering committee co-chaired by Gaja Kerry Charlton and Professor Peter Hj, UQs Vice-Chancellor and President, UQ has developed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to build on the extensive work undertaken to support the inclusion of diverse cultures and knowledges. The RAP recognises the contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have brought and continue to bring to UQ.

In providing a practical framework for UQ, the RAP strengthens this work in building respectful relationships and opportunities between Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous peoples.

On 5 December 2018, UQ will launch its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). The RAP outlines UQs commitment to practical actions and deliverables that strengthen and build relationships, respect and opportunities between Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous peoples.

UQs RAP Launch Ceremony, will take place in the Graduation Marquee in the Great Court from 1011.30am and will includes speeches and performances by distinguished alumni, including renowned songwriter and artist, Kev Carmody as well as a morning tea showcasing a contemporary bush-tucker inspired menu.

Simultaneous launch events will also take place at UQs Gatton and UQs Herston campuses.

UQ Alumni, UQ staff and students, industry partners, and Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and broader communities are welcome at this important occasion.
