30 Minutes a Month
30 Minutes a Month is a micro-volunteering program – where small acts on your part make a big difference to our students. You give 30 minutes out of your month to complete activities that benefit you, current students, and your fellow graduates. These activities further your professional development, help students get the most out of their education and help the University demonstrate the impact our alumni are making in our communities.
The program is an annual, 9-month program that runs from March-November.
Please note that the 2022 program is now closed. Check back in February 2023 for the new program details.
Each month, participants are set a priority activity, which will take around 30 minutes to complete. When you complete enough months you receive a reward. Simple!
From a Certificate I to a PhD, if you have graduated with a CQUniversity qualification you are eligible to join this program.

Get those warm, fuzzy, feel-good feelings knowing your participation is helping students prepare for graduation and fellow graduates pursue their careers.
This program is designed to get you completing activities that expand your professional experience and online presence.
You can build a portfolio of demonstrable experience by adding the tasks you complete to your resume.
If you’re publishing posts online, you’ll also be demonstrating your knowledge and communication skills to your network. When (not if) potential employers do background searches online, they’ll be presented with evidence of your thought-leadership through the posts you’ve made – impressive.
When you were studying, did you ever have a moment where you weren’t sure where your study was taking you; or how to approach the leap between study and your first job? Many of the tasks in this program are designed to help students in these times – and the people best positioned to give advice are those who have experienced it.
This program is designed to involve alumni in simple activities that make a big difference - both to your professional development, but also to current students and the University.
We want to reward you for getting involved because your contribution through these carefully selected activities really helps students get the most of their education, and helps the University demonstrate the impact alumni are making in our communities.
