Professor Greg Lehman
Pro Vice-Chancellor, Aboriginal Leadership

As the newly appointed Pro Vice-Chancellor, Aboriginal Leadership, it is Prof. Lehman's Job to promote a vibrant, intellectual, highly visible Indigenous (especially Tasmanian Aboriginal) presence within 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 the policy on achieving these aims, across the areas of students, teaching and learning, research, community and governance.

The aim of Prof. Lehman's office 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 Prof. Lehman's office (greg.lehman@utas.edu.au) if you have any queries on how the University of Tasmania does Aboriginal Business.
