UQ Women Create Change

From designing safer cities, to helping fight world hunger – UQ women create change across the world, every day. 

For more than a century, UQ has educated and worked with outstanding people to deliver unparalleled teaching and research. Now, in 2018, more than half of our diverse community of students and staff are women – who inspire, drive and create change across the world, every day.
