Information for Indigenous Australians
‘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,’ Professor Michael McDaniel, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Leadership and Engagement) and Director, Jumbunna.

Our Indigenous commitment

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.
