#10 - How one UQ College maintains its values

University residential colleges, and all-male colleges in particular, have been criticised as having no place in the 21st Century. In this episode, Rowan talks to Steve Foley, the head of St Leo's College, UQ's last remaining all-male college, about how he's acted to change the culture of the college. Steve says he's called out behaviours that he thinks are inappropriate or inconsistent with the values of the organisation, despite resistance from some pockets of the organisation pressuring him not to change the college. Maddy talks with a former St Leo's resident about what he thinks of the changes, and where the residents themselves have had struggles with Steve.

#8 - Mayoral Candidates Patrick Condren and Kath Angus

This week we speak to Pat Condren (Labor) and Kath Angus (Greens), two candidates in the race against the Lord Mayor of Brisbane. As well as the two candidates' plans for uni students (and UQ students in particular), we discuss Pat's plans to stop the rorts in City Council, and Kath's plans to bring our city to life with fair and democratic communities. Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner was unavailable for understandable reasons (at the time of publication, we are very much in the throes of a global pandemic). From everyone at Semper and Flourish, we hope you're staying safe and sane in quarantine!
