National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

UQ will be holding a number of events and activations from 24 May-3 June to commemorate National Reconciliation Week. Explore our online and on-campus program at National Reconciliation Week - UQ Life - University of Queensland
