UQ Telephone Engagement Campaign

A phone call from students is our personal way of staying in touch with the UQ community. Last year we had over 7,500 conversations with alumni and friends, and we look forward to connecting with you this year!

Why we call:

  • Reconnect with your UQ community
  • Share with you: information about UQ Alumni benefits, upcoming events, and other opportunities
  • Ensure we have the most up to date contact information, so you don’t miss out on news, publications and event invitations
  • Hear your favourite stories from your time at UQ and learn about where life has taken you today
  • Offer an opportunity to give advice to our student callers about the lessons you’ve learned
  • Share with you: ways you can get involved with UQ to support the causes you care about

When are you calling?

This year’s Telephone Engagement Campaign will run from March to November. The UQ student callers will make calls Monday to Saturday during afternoon and evening hours.
