The School of Psychology’s Indigenous Strategy 2020-2025 (PDF, 2605.03 KB) (opens in a new window) is a reflection of the School’s commitment to further developing our relationship with Indigenous Communities.

Our goal is to enhance and strengthen our curriculum, generate increased collaboration for research, and to be authentic in our engagement within the Community.

The School is committed to attracting, retaining and graduating Indigenous Australian student through participation and conversation; and by providing a supportive and inclusive student learning environment.

As a School, we are committed to developing job-ready graduates, by offering the opportunity to learn and develop complementary knowledge and skills that prepare our students for a diverse range of professional careers and workplaces.

The School’s Indigenous Strategy follows the University’s plan in focusing on strategic objectives in seven areas:

1 Indigenous Students
2 Indigenous Employment
3 Indigenous Research
4 Learning and Teaching
5 Community Engagement
6 Indigenous Leadership
7 Cultural Viability and Knowledge.

I wish to acknowledge and thank the School’s Indigenous Advisory Committee and the Equity and Diversity Working Party for their contribution to the Indigenous Strategy.
