Inclusive leadership

We expect our leaders to role model curiosity, trust and care and be genuine advocates for a culture of inclusion.

Inclusive leadership encourages diversity of thought, robust discussion, debate and the giving and receiving of transparent feedback.

We know that a genuinely inclusive and collaborative environment means we achieve better outcomes for our staff and students.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
