End of Year message from Indigenous Engagement Division.

23 December 2019

Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Engagement) Professor Bronwyn Fredericks extends best wishes and season’s greetings to all of our Indigenous Engagement community leading into the University closure at the end of December.

“I am so proud that over 80 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students have graduated in 2019. They graduate from areas as diverse as Medicine, Veterinary Science, Engineering, Writing, Agribusiness and Sports Coaching” said Professor Fredericks.

For our current students, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit on the St Lucia campus will be available through until 5PM, Monday the 23rd December 2019 and will reopen from 8am Thursday 2nd of January 2020. The Student Support Team is available to assist with any enquiries throughout the summer semester. Current students who wish to obtain 24-hour access to the Unit over the Summer Semester can contact the ATSIS Unit via email: atsis@uq.edu.au or phone 07 3443 1404.

The Student Support team is available to assist future students with 2020 enrolments, admission, OP Advice, and scholarships and accommodation enquiries. Please refer to www.atsis.uq.edu.au for more information on our Admissions Pathway Program.

The Director of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit, Professor Tracey Bunda, wishes to thank the staff for their tireless work this year.

“It’s been another busy year for the ATSIS Unit, with more students than ever engaging with our range of services and activities. This year we’ve helped students make new friends, get involved in exciting activities and achieve personal and professional goals,” Professor Bunda said.

Professor Bunda, Professor Fredericks and all of the staff in the Indigenous Engagement division would like to wish everyone safe holidays and a prosperous 2020. The video below highlights only some of our achievements this year. Bring on 2020!
