2 Acknowledgement of Country

The University of Queensland (UQ) acknowledges Traditional Owners and their custodianship of the lands on which UQ operates. We pay our respects to their Ancestors and descendants, who continue to have cultural and spiritual connections to Country. We recognise their valuable contributions to Australian and global society.

Additionally, we would like to acknowledge and pay respect to UQ’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, staff, Elders and visitors who come from many nations across Australia.

To learn more about acknowledging Country, you can view the In Practice chapter. Acknowledgement of Country palm cards (PDF, 749KB) are available digitally.
