PVC Aboriginal Research & Leadership

ya pulingina! (Welcome!)

As Pro Vice-Chancellor, Aboriginal Research and Leadership it is my job to promote a vibrant, intellectual highly visible Indigenous, especially Tasmanian Aboriginal, presence of the life, culture and knowledge traditions of the University of Tasmania.

The University of Tasmania Strategic Plan for Aboriginal Engagement (2017-2020) (PDF 1.9 MB) sets out our policy on achieving these aims, across the areas of students, teaching and learning, research, community and governance.

Our aim is to consolidate a whole of University respect and integration of Indigenous perspectives, knowledges and culture across scholarship, research and study. We want engaging with the University of Tasmania, whether as a student, staff member or community member, to mean coming to a University that celebrates Aboriginal deep history and values and nurtures its Aboriginal connections.

Please contact my office Maggie.Walter@utas.edu.au if you have any queries on how the University of Tasmania does Aboriginal Business. We are happy to help.
