Federation University Australia is committed to ensuring that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are involved in the governance and decision-making of the University.

The University's key objectives are to be:

  1. Regional in focus, national in scope and international in reach
  2. Comprehensive in its offerings, student-centred in its approach and providing access to effective and high quality learning
  3. Strategic in fostering world-class research
  4. Productive and effective in forming partnerships and engaging with its communities and regions; and
  5. Accountable for what it does.

Our Reconciliation Action Plan contributes to these objectives by ensuring that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff and students are fully engaged in Federation University Australia governance, education, employment and community endeavours. Reconciliation thus addresses the inheritance of inequity and enhances and enriches those qualities that define Federation University Australia.

The Manager of the Aboriginal Education Centre is a member of, and makes significant strategic and operational input to, the University's

  • Academic Board
  • Learning and Teaching Committee
  • Social Inclusion Committee
  • Reconciliation Action Plan Committee.

The Aboriginal Education Centre sits within the Academic Portfolio, reporting through to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), who in turn reports to the Vice-Chancellor.
