Community of Former Staff QUT alumni chapter

The QUT Community of Former Staff (CoFSQUT) is a way to reconnect former staff and their colleagues who worked at QUT and its predecessor institutions like:

  • Brisbane College of Advanced Education
  • Queensland Institute of Technology
  • North Brisbane College of Advanced Education
  • Queensland Teachers Training College
  • Kelvin Grove Teachers College
  • Kedron Park Teachers College
  • Kelvin Grove College of Advanced Education
  • Central Technical College
  • Brisbane Kindergarten Training College.

This alumni community works to:

  • encourage ongoing fellowship and enjoyable social contact among former staff members
  • assist former staff who wish to give of their time and expertise on projects supporting QUT and its students
  • help former staff stay in contact with activities and developments at QUT
  • build an organising committee of former staff, both professional and academic representatives from all campuses.
