Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Employment

At University of Tasmania we value diversity, and the strength, resilience and creativity it brings. We value the creative possibilities that arise when people with skills, talents and innovative ideas come together and give each other the confidence to focus on opportunity. We are a Tasmanian institution, and we work in a unique setting and actively partner with the communities in which we live. We look to build on existing partnerships and develop new partnerships with Aboriginal people.

Our Aboriginal Employment Plan 2021-2024 (PDF 1.9 MB) has been developed to reflect our goal of increasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation in employment at the University.
