Universities have a special part to play in reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians. Deakin welcomes the responsibility of educating the next generation of ambitious First Nations thinkers, alongside our commitment to promoting issues of social justice and human rights.
We are committed to enabling all our students and staff to respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge, culture and values. Acknowledging, building and sustaining understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians starts with recognition that these lands have been the home of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples for many thousands of years.
Whether you're learning, teaching, researching or working in a professional capacity at Deakin, opportunities to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and knowledge are always encouraged.
