Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, parents and community
Participation, engagement and education of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples at the University of Sydney are articulated in the Wingara Mura - Bunga Barrabugu strategy. This strategy is articulated via widening participation schemes such as the University's People Like Us and Souths Cares' Nanga Mai Marri programs.
In fulfilment of the Get Prepared program, the University of Sydney is also developing a Student Learning Network (SLN) intended for use by Indigenous students. The SLN will provide a culturally competent and youth-oriented resource with national application, providing an avenue for ongoing connection that will link exploration of high school decisions, online tutoring, career and study options, and preparation for higher education.
In addition, the Social Inclusion Unit manages the Wingara Mura - Bunga Barrabugu Winter & Summer Programs: practical on-campus engagements for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 considering studies beyond high school. Furthermore, during Reconciliation Week each year, Compass runs the Year 7 & 8 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students Explore Uni day.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students Experience Days are a partnership between the University of Sydney, The Smith Family and the Koori Centre.
