Our Education and Research Framework

This Framework is interconnected with a number of strategies and plans across the University, our community and the Higher Education sector.

It does not delve into the detail of each - but rather points to the relevant strategy, plan and contact point to connect and collaborate with.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education and research is everyone’s responsibility. It is how all of us, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, can learn, research and apply Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being.

This Framework will see the University, our communities and our region work together to achieve excellence.
