What is HASS Crew?

HASS Crew is a student-run initiative funded by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. We aim to help HASS students find their way around HASS, UQ and university life in general.

Working in collaboration with the HASS Student Futures Team, we organise events throughout the semester that aim to connect students, staff and alumni based on our common interest in the humanities and social sciences. Our events focus on orientation, study pathways, employability and cohort-building.

We're building our own skills at the same time as helping other HASS students. To find out more about volunteering with HASS Crew, contact studentfutures@hass.uq.edu.au.

   Follow HASS Crew on Facebook to keep up to date with all HASS Crew news and events.
