UQ Telephone Engagement Campaign

UQ Calling Crew December 2019

Why do I receive a call from UQ?

A phone call from students is our personal way of staying in touch with the UQ community. Last year we had over 5,000 conversations with alumni and friends in Australia and more than 600 people made a donation in support of the causes which matter most to them. 

Why do we call:

  • To thank you for being part of the UQ community
  • Learn about upcoming online events, volunteering and mentoring opportunities
  • Ensure we have the most up to date contact information so you don’t miss out on news, publications and event invitations
  • Tell us your favourite stories from your time at  UQ and hear what our student callers say about their experiences
  • Give advice to our student callers and share the lessons you’ve learned

When are you calling?

This year’s Telephone Engagement Campaign will run from August to October. The student callers will make calls during the day on Monday to Saturday and on weekday evenings.

What number are you calling from?

Are my personal details safeguarded?
