Reconciliation Action Plan

ֱ’s mission is to create change that positively influences society by engaging in the pursuit of excellence through the creation, preservation, transfer and application of knowledge. We aspire to make Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledges an integral component of this mission.

We help shape the future by understanding our past and present – including understanding the intergenerational injustices experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians since colonisation, as well as the continued strength of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures in the face of these injustices. ֱ strives for the personal and professional success of all our students, staff and alumni. We aim towards increasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation and success in higher education through culturally inclusive environments and practices.

As an inclusive ֱ, we aspire to acknowledge that the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – and inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledges and perspectives – in higher education is meaningful and important for all members of the University community.

And in the spirit of reconciliation, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and broader ֱ community contributions are integral to the achievement of all our University values:

  • Pursuit of excellence
  • Creativity and independent thinking
  • Honesty and accountability
  • Mutual respect and diversity
  • Supporting our people.
