PVC - Aboriginal 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 if you have any queries on how the University of Tasmania does Aboriginal Business. We are happy to help.
