Right to information

Breadcrumbs

Context

As a public authority, the University of the Sunshine Coast is required to comply with the Right to Information Act. The Act is designed to give members of the public access to non-personal information held by the Queensland Government and its agencies, unless it is deemed contrary to the public interest to do so.

The University of the Sunshine Coast provides information about its operations and activities through a number of channels: its website, printed publications, public lectures and events. For ease of access, much of the University’s information is grouped together and made available through the Publication scheme below.

For information not available through these channels, a formal application can be made. Details of how to apply are listed below. Alternatively, requests can be made through the RTI and Privacy Coordinator. Wherever possible, requests for information will be handled administratively, without the need for formal Right to Information applications.

Publication scheme

Our publication scheme is grouped into seven classes of information that reflect the main functions of the University. As well as documents in PDF format, accessible text versions are available for key University publications such as Ignite magazine and the Annual Report. Printed copies of Annual Reports are also available on request to Marketing and External Engagement. Printed copies of programs guides and handbooks are available on request to Student Services and Engagement. No charges are made for these materials.
