Advancement at UQ

Throughout its history, The University of Queensland has benefited from the support of its alumni and friends to enhance funding, deliver world-class research and allow students to reach their full potential. The St Lucia campus rests on land gifted through the Mayne siblings and the School of Veterinary Science continues to use farmland at Pinjarra Hills, donated to the University in the early 1920s. The modern research-intensive University is supported by a partnership of significant philanthropy and leveraged grants from the government.

As UQ moves into its second century, the University is committed to solidifying its reputation as one of the world’s pre-eminent public research universities. This involves strengthening our brand, improving our links with alumni and partners, and promoting a strong culture of giving to significantly grow the sustainable level of philanthropic support the University receives annually. In line with this commitment the University launched its first major comprehensive campaign, Not If, When – The Campaign to Create Change in 2017, with the target of raising $500 million for strategic priorities aimed at empowering student success, transforming teaching and learning, and driving discovery and impact.

The campaign formally closed on 31 December 2020, exceeding the campaign target by over 20%. Fundraising and engagement efforts continue to accelerate post-campaign. 2021 marks the beginning of the ‘celebration phase’ of the campaign, to strategically celebrate the power of partnership, and what can be achieved when we work together with our partners within – and beyond – the UQ community.

Advancement at UQ works in partnership with academic and professional colleagues throughout the University to increase engagement and to establish enduring relationships with key constituents including alumni, community, friends, organisations, trusts, foundations, industry and corporations. Under the leadership of the Vice-Chancellor and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Advancement), Advancement is investing in a high performing team to partner with UQ academia to deliver new sustainable levels of philanthropic support.
