Diversity and Inclusion at SMI


SMI has established a Diversity and Inclusion committee, with the aim of developing initiatives to address any imbalance in diversity across the Institute. 


The University of Queensland values the strength that diversity and inclusion brings to the University.

By practising the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion at SMI, we seek to create a vibrant and inclusive environment that allows ideas to flourish, people to be empowered and our community to grow.

The diversity of our staff and student populations contributes to innovation and excellence in our research, teaching and learning endeavours, and marks UQ as an internationally leading institution. 

Further information regarding UQ's HR policy can be found here.
