Uni seeks to improve engagement
CQUniversity is striving to become the university most engaged with the community.
A number of forums will be held throughout September to reach that goal with one being held today from 4.30pm to 7pm.
The forum aims to build an understanding of the priorities and opportunities that are relevant to communities.
CQUniversity partners with hundreds of organisations and businesses in Central Queensland to create and exchange knowledge, to deliver services and to find solutions.
At the forum key issues will be discussed that are relevant to the region.
A spokesman said everyone would work together to identify new opportunities for partnerships and to challenge business and individuals to work harder and smarter to support Gladstone’s development.
Feedback from these forums would be used to develop projects for the community engagement reference groups.
These groups will be established as part of our community engagement strategy.
They will be project-based and action-oriented and will be directed by the local regional engagement committee.
CQUniversity is undergoing many changes at the moment including collaborating more closely with TAFE.
Along with these forums CQU is going through staff movements with new professors, additional lecturers and new deans starting in coming weeks. Also, a greater emphasis will be put on skill and learning development.
For more information on the forums you can contact CQU on 4970 7277.
