Head of School welcome

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the School of Education at The University of Queensland, a leading centre for teaching and research on education. Whether you are a student, teacher, policymaker, community member, donor, or other stakeholder, I hope that you will find ways to engage and collaborate with us.

Education is a cornerstone of a fair society, and our School is committed to the values of social equity, inclusivity, and the meaningful integration of diverse perspectives in education. This commitment motivates our ongoing work to recognise, include and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge, cultures, and peoples in teaching and research.

At the heart of our work is a connection to teaching and the teaching profession: as part of a world-leading research university, our School is uniquely positioned to develop highly-skilled teachers who are experts in their fields and committed to creating change. Through our teaching and research, we help realise the University’s mission to deliver for the public good through excellence in education.

I invite you to learn more about us and find ways to engage with our work.
