A University for all

CQUniversity is Australia’s most inclusive university. The University has more students from low socio economic backgrounds than any other university in Australia. We are proud to have over three times the number of indigenous students than the national average. Students attend the University from 51 countries across the world.

From next year we will be a dual sector university offering opportunities for students undertaking Vocational Education and Training.

We also want to engage with all communities in our region. I think this picture sums up our welcoming approach. It shows Anita and I with one of our fantastic staff Gemma and her partner. Gemma was one of the organisers of the recent Central Queensland Fair Day. This was an event aimed mainly at our Gay and Lesbian Community. You will also see from our shirts that we had just come from the relay for life also held on campus on the same day. CQUniversity welcomes all communities be them cancer survivors, sporting teams or our Gay and Lesbian Community. ALL are welcome at this University.
