Reconciliation at ֱ

ֱ acknowledges and respects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as First Australians, whose knowledge, cultures, histories and languages have been created and shared for at least 65,000 years.

Our vision is to build a strong sense of belonging in an inclusive ֱ that works respectfully with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, staff and communities in teaching, learning, research and collaboration.

National NAIDOC Week, 7 – 14 July

National NAIDOC Week (7–14 July) celebrates the histories, cultures, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.

ֱ is holding events throughout the week to promote reconciliation.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Through our 2019-2022 Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan, we have worked towards addressing the legacies of the past and making a substantial and ongoing contribution to reconciliation. By fostering mutually beneficial partnerships and collaboration, we have shared learning, knowledge, language and culture.

In 2024, we will be launching our new Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan. This plan will further embed reconciliation across ֱ,making it business as usual. In this way, the University continues its commitment to become a leader in reconciliation.
