Yooroang Garang administers ITAS for all Indigenous students at the Faculty of Health Science and also for those at the Department of Rural Health at Broken Hill. It is a peer support scheme, which provides funding for extra tuition for those Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who require additional academic assistance. ITAS tutors are paid to provide tuition on an individual or group basis according to the students needs. The tuitions can either be conducted on-campus whilst on block or in the students home town.
