Riawunna Centre

About Us

Welcome to the Riawunna Centre for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Higher Education

In the spirit of Reconciliation, the University of Tasmania respectfully acknowledges the lutriwita nations. The University also recognises the Aboriginal history and culture of the land and acknowledges and pays respect to the Traditional Owners and to Elders past, present and emerging of the land on which the campuses stand.

The Riawunna Centre provides a welcoming space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to meet, study and access academic and pastoral support and assistance. The staff are highly committed to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, staff and communities to achieve their education aspirations.

The Centre also provides information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and societies, promotes cross-cultural understandings, and is a prominent place within the University for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander values, traditions and discourses.

The Staff also offer a wide range of skills and experience to non-Aboriginal people wanting to understand Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories.

The Centre is located on the Ground Floor of the Hytten Hall Building on the Hobart campus and in the Riawunna Building on the Launceston campus. A support office is situated on the Cradle Coast Campus.
