The strategic direction and leadership of teaching and learning is the responsibility of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic).

Our Student Life Plan and Teaching and Learning Plan signal the goals, strategies and actions guiding our collective commitment to helping students with life during their studies and preparing them to be game-changing graduates. Both plans provide pathways to realising the UQ Strategic Plan 2018–2021 through the goals articulated in the Student Strategy 2016–2020 and Student Retention and Success Strategy 2019–2021.


UQ has served students well for over a century. We will continue to do so into the 21st century because we take seriously our responsibility to prepare students for an unknown future.

Professor Joanne Wright, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic)
