UQ Telephone Engagement Campaign

Each year, a group of current UQ students hold thousands of conversations with our UQ community to learn and celebrate their major milestones and hear stories of their connection to the university. A phone call from students is our personal way of staying in touch, and we look forward to connecting with you soon!

Why we call:

  • Reconnect with your UQ community
  • Ensure we have the most up to date contact information, so you don’t miss out on your exclusive event invitations, benefits and exciting news
  • Hear your favourite stories from your connection to UQ and learn about the milestones you are celebrating
  • Share about the ways you can get involved with the UQ community to support the causes you care about

When are you calling?

This year’s Telephone Engagement Campaign will run from February to November. Our student callers (meet the Crew here) make calls Monday to Saturday during afternoon and evening hours. Please let one of the Crew members know if you would prefer to have a call at a specific time of day.
