Sybilla Wilson
Senior Service Improvement Manager

I have enjoyed bringing the campus to life and being involved with the Peer Mentoring Project, Student Staff Partners, Campus Activation, increasing volunteering and representative opportunities for students and the development of the UQlife Brand. My favourite time of year is during the BLOOM festival where the campus is filled with magic!

I have been privileged enough to watch the Student Experience grow on campus and online, creating a sense of belonging that leads to ongoing success in students' studies, as well as in their personal and social life.

Welcome and Induction Coordinator

 In my role, it’s my aim to inspire new and returning students to feel comfortable at UQ, to be prepared for their studies and to actively engage and participate in campus life. I'm originally from a small country town on the Darling Downs and in my free time I love playing and watching sport and spending time with family and friends.
