Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People
Leader in Indigenous employment
We are proud to be a sector leader in Indigenous employment. Our NeW Directions Strategic Plan 2013-2015 prioritises the embedding of Indigenous knowledge across the University to nurture an awareness of issues and a strong commitment to social justice.
We are a university of excellence for Indigenous employment, education and research.
We have the highest number of Indigenous staff of any university in Australia. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people currently make up 2.8 per cent of our staff. Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy Maligagu focuses on attracting quality applications for academic and professional positions at all levels across the University. We provide an internal environment that promotes professional and personal growth for Indigenous staff and develop strong collaboration with relevant community organisations.
We are also the only university in New South Wales to have a campus-wide approach to reconciliation with our Reconciliation Action Plan 2011-2015 (PDF 940KB).
