Since 1983, the Wollotuka Institute has operated as a support centre for Indigenous students studying at the University of Newcastle with unparalleled leadership who champion an academically enriching and culturally affirming education.
We are at the cutting edge of Indigenous education, student recruitment, student support and offer an academic program to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. We continue to draw strength from culture, communities and past journeys.
Our work has seen us forge a reputation as a leader in Indigenous education in Australia and we continue to play a pivotal role in leading self-determination and social justice.
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.
