Fostering cultural competency
The University of Newcastle has a nationally recognised history of achievement in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education and actively pursues a "whole-of university" commitment to Indigenous collaboration.
As part of this commitment, we have established targets for staff and students to complete the Indigenous Cultural Competency: Our Way program.
The use of Our Way reflects the University of Newcastle's tradition of innovation in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education and is used as a philosophy for the activities in The Wollotuka Institute. It also attests to the importance of local priorities in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.
