Acknowledgement of First Peoples

We acknowledge and honour the Giabal and Jarowair peoples of the Toowoomba area; the Jagera, Yuggera and Ugarapul peoples of Springfield and Ipswich areas; the Butchulla peoples of Fraser Coast and Maryborough areas; and the Kambuwal peoples of Stanthorpe area as the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waterways where the University of Southern Queensland is located.

Further, we acknowledge the cultural diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and pay respect to elders past, present and future. We celebrate the continuous living cultures of First Australians and acknowledge the important contribution Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have in Australian society.

The University respects and acknowledges our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, staff, Elders and visitors who come from many nations across Australia.
