The People's University: 100 Years Of The University Of Queensland

Author: Ben Robertson



Celebrating 100 years of the University of Queensland.

Founded in 1909, the University of Queensland was a gift to the people in celebration of the state's Golden Jubilee of separation from New South Wales. From humble and challenging beginnings in a tough frontier society, the University of Queensland has grown into one of the top 50 universities in the world with over 40,000 students across 50 sites.

The People's University
commemorates a century of learning and research that has produced alumni who have gone on to become Nobel laureates, Oscar winners, state premiers, Olympic medallists and celebrated writers. Little-known facts and much-talked-about public triumphs come together in this lively narrative that recognises the university's rich past and dynamic present.

Featuring over 140 images, The People's University also showcases UQ's unique natural landscape that stretches from the Great Barrier Reef to the banks of the Brisbane River.

But it is not just its environment that has made the University of Queensland iconic; it is the people who have taught, worked and studied here over the last hundred years - they have created an enduring legacy that will see the university through its next century. The People's University is a lasting tribute to every one of them.

Limited hardback edition. Paperback also available.
