Guided by the University’s Indigenous Elders Advisory Committee, the existing Milperra campus’ ‘Wall of Hands’, a 5-metre brick wall of Indigenous graduates’ painted handprints over the past 40-years, was carefully taken apart to allow its incorporation into Western Sydney University’s new Bankstown CBD campus.
