We actively promote engagement with communities and industry through a variety of avenues in a manner that enhances learning, research and quality of life.
Social Justice is at the centre USQ's culture and history. The Office of Social Justice is responsible for ensuring that any programs and practices we engage in are consistent with the principles of equity, social justice and inclusiveness.

The Centre for Australian Indigenous Knowledges (CAIK) delivers a number of Indigenous courses and programs. These courses and programs focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and have been designed by Indigenous staff, in consultation with the Indigenous community.
The USQ Student Guild is the social, cultural and sporting centre of the University, providing a wide range of activities and services to all students of USQ (i.e. our members). It is a non-profit organisation, and receives the majority of its funds from the University. Other income is generated from its commercial trading areas. The Student Guild uses these funds to provide facilities and services for the benefit and welfare of its members and for recreational, cultural, artistic and sporting events for the University community.
