QUTPA represents more than 25 nations of the Pacific. Although separated into three different groups (Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia), we are unified as ‘ONENESIA’.
As an affiliated association with the Queensland University of Technology, our objectives are to:
- Provide a comfortable “family-like” environment for all Pasifika students to network and ultimately find support through university
- Encourage the balance between all aspects of university life: academic, social and cultural
- Break the negative stereotypes that have been linked to Pacific Islanders in relation to higher education
- Be the voice and raise important issues affecting our Pacific Islands
- Create awareness of the different cultures within Pasifika (Melanesian, Micronesian and Polynesian)
