Posts Tagged ‘Central Queensland University’

I am now Professor of Learning, Equity, Acces and Participation at Central Queensland University, Australia.

My role is to play a key role in the development and operation of relevant and meaningful policies and practices that provide engaged and inclusive learning experiences for indigenous and non-indigenous students, students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, students with disabilities, and students with socio-economic barriers.

CQUniversity Australia has a unique and interesting history. The University was originally founded in Rockhampton in 1967 and was known as the Queensland Institute of Technology (Capricornia). By 1974 it was among only a few Australian institutes to commence the delivery of distance education.

Between 1978 and 1989 further campuses were established in Bundaberg, Emerald, Gladstone, and Mackay and in 1992 the Institute achieved full University status to become known as Central Queensland University. Along with locations in regional Queensland, CQUniversity has also expanded its presence throughout Australia with campuses in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Noosa and Sydney, Study Centres in Biloela and Yeppoon, a Cairns Distance Education Study Centre, a delivery site in Edithvale, Victoria, and Partner Study Hubs in Cannonvale, Queensland and Geraldton, Western Australia.

Now more than 20 years on, and following a merger with CQ TAFE on 1 July 2014, CQUniversity is responsible for providing a diverse range of training and education programs and courses to more than 30,000 students studying qualifications from certificate to post doctorate level.
