An examination of suspected official misconduct at the University of Queensland
In December 2010 the University of Queensland (UQ) offered a place in its 2011 undergraduate medical program to a school leaver who had not met the entry requirements for admission into that particular course.
The CMC’s public report arising out of this matter covers three aspects:
- the outcomes of an investigation into potential criminal misconduct
- a review of the University of Queensland’s handling of the allegations
- a quality review.
It identifies important issues of relevance to other agencies in relation to conflicts of interest and management of allegations of misconduct.
