‘We believe that Indigenous education is not only about creating opportunities for Indigenous people, but is equally about creating opportunities for all Australians to gain a deeper understanding of Indigenous Australia – the most ancient thread in our national fabric. It is about taking us all into the future. It is about nation building.’
Jumbunna Director, Professor Michael McDaniel
The Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning exists to support the academic, social, cultural and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at UTS. Our vision is to create a place where all Indigenous Australians can access education and be supported to succeed.
What can Jumbunna do for you?
Our students are the heart of Jumbunna. When you study with us, you’ll become part of the Jumbunna family. Our team will support you through every step of your UTS journey, from application to graduation.
At Jumbunna, we are committed to raising the status of Indigenous people at UTS and driving UTS’s commitment to Indigenous issues, education and employment outcomes. UTS and Jumbunna recognise the Gadigal and Guring-gai people of the Eora nation as the Traditional Owners and holders of knowledge of the places where our campuses stand. We acknowledge elders both past and present and recognise the contribution that Indigenous people make to the academic and cultural life of the university.
At Jumbunna, an ATAR isn’t the be all and end all. Whether you're a current school leaver or mature aged, all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can apply for Jumbunna Pathways Program at UTS.
