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.
