Indigenous advancement

We are all enriched when the history, knowledge and ability of our First Nations People is respected and included.

What reconciliation means to the University of Newcastle.

The University of Newcastle has a proud history of leadership in Indigenous education and engagement. But we are not complacent, more needs to be done.

In partnership with the Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor for Indigenous Strategy and Leadership and the Wollotuka Institute, we are working to ensure our commitment to Indigenous advancement is delivered through a whole-of-life approach for our students, staff, and the wider community.

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.
