|Project:||Institute of Koorie Education academic building|

Works for the new building and extension of the Institute of Koorie Education are now complete. Staff from the Institute moved into their new building in December 2012.
The Institute of Koorie Education has grown significantly since it moved into its current academic premises in 1995. With partial funding from the DEEWR's Capital Development Pool and the Harold Mitchell Foundation, the Institute has undergone a complete refurbishment and extension.
The existing building has been upgraded to provide high quality facilities and amenities, all tastefully presented in a natural, distinctively Australian colour palette. Extensions to the building’s northern side have provided the Institute with additional rooms for teaching, research and functions and events.
This project reflects the University's commitment to working with Aboriginal communities to improve education opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
