Our Indigenous strategy, Wingara Mura-Bunga Barrabugu, outlines our commitment to creating higher education and leadership opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and for valuing Indigenous culture at our University.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the country on which the University of Sydney campuses stand and our responsibility to respect and care for country, people and spirit.
We're deeply committed to higher education and career advancement for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff.
Wingara Mura-Bunga Barrabugu - creating a "thinking path to make tomorrow" - sets the benchmark in Australia for making Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education and research everyone’s business. Wingara Mura is underpinned by the belief that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education, research and engagement are integral to our entire University community.
Since 2011, we have invested more than $14 million to support and embed the strategy and its philosophy across the University.
We provide support for young Indigenous Australians who dream of studying at university and turning their interests into rewarding careers.
We're the top choice for higher education for Indigenous students with a wide range of programs, facilities and support networks.
Mentoring for new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students so they can settle into university life.
Cultural competence is a major priority in our 2016-20 Strategy as we strive to make Sydney a truly inclusive, culturally diverse and distinctively Australian university, where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are part of our identity.
The Sydney Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research Network was established in 2014 to promote indigenous research initiatives at the University. The network brings together academics from across disciplines to collaborate and exchange ideas.
