Pillar of UQ Architecture departs after over 40 years of service

Monday September 5, 2016

Kay held various positions within the University up until 1989 when she was appointed in the Department of Architecture.

For the last 27 years, Kay has provided unwavering, high-quality support to numerous Heads of School, hundreds of academic and teaching staff,and thousands of students.

To acknowledge the outstanding contribution that Kay has made to Architecture, the School is proud to announce that the Idearchitecture Student Prize will be renamed the Kay Leaf-Milham Prize. The prize is awarded to a student enrolled in the Bachelor of Architectural Design who has made an outstanding contribution to the culture of the design studio through their hard work and devotion.

The School looks forward to Kay returning every year to award the prize at the Prize and Appreciation Evening.

Kay’s knowledge, patience and compassion will be sincerely missed, so before she embarks on the next exciting phase of her life, we sat down with her to ask about her fondest memories and what’s changed at UQ over the last four decades.
