In June, UQ took part in the The Push-Up Challenge which is an initiative to help shine the spotlight on the number of lives lost to suicide in 2019 and raise awareness of mental health.

The School of Languages and Cultures participated with two of our teams topping the leader board: Polyglot Pushers and UQ MAJIT.
