The below UQ guidelines apply to ALL UQ staff and students as stipulated in the UQ Policy and Procedures Library for events involving dignitaries.

The University protocol was developed to ensure all invitations to dignitaries and VIPs are:

  • Considered strategically in the context of the University event/activity,
  • Monitored to ensure dignitaries are not being overwhelmed by multiple invitations from different areas of the University,
  • Managed through a single point of contact (the Protocol team in OMC), and
  • Approved in advance by the Office of the Vice-Chancellor.
