2021 - Key metrics, achievements and initiatives

Engagement Highlights

  • The number of significant alumni engagement events that could be presented in 2021 was severely limited by the COVID-19 restrictions. Nevertheless, a well-subscribed Alumni webinar series was offered throughout the year along with a series of Health-related symposia in conjunction with the Faculty of Medicine and Queensland Brain Institute.
  • The work of many HaBS staff, especially the wastewater monitoring team in UQ's Queensland Alliance for Environmental Health Sciences, has played a significant role in the state (and national) response to COVID.
  • A Brisbane 2032 Paralympic Network for Performance Enhancement and Applied Sport Research was launched.
  •  The HaBS Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) Committee met regularly throughout 2021 to advance a number of initiatives to support and increase the number of Indigenous staff and students within the Faculty.
  • Work led by Professor Nancy Pachana in the Faculty that resulted in UQ being recognised in 2020 as the first Age-Friendly University in the southern hemisphere continued.
