Published on 16 September, 2011
CQUniversity was proud to be a platinum sponsor for the 2011 Nepalese dance competition held in Brisbane recently.
This competition is an Australia-wide event jointly organised by the Nepalese Association of Queensland and the Non-Resident Nepalese Association.

The event was organised to promote Nepalese culture and tradition and to create an atmosphere of co-operation among the Nepalese communities in Australia.
There were 37 competitors of Nepalese origin from across Australia and performances were applauded by a 350-strong audience.
There are currently 453 Nepalese students studying across CQUniversity's campuses.
Kamal Gurung, a successful graduate of CQUniversity in 1997 is now working as the Associate Director of Finance and Administration at CQUniversity Brisbane.
Supporting this event reflects the importance the University places on cultural diversity and is recognition of the contribution of the Nepalese community to CQUniversity campuses and Australia.
