Indigenous knowledge and culture at the University of Melbourne

Learn more about Indigenous knowledge and culture and how it is making a significant contribution to the University of Melbourne and the broader community. Indigenous students and staff are realising exceptional two-way education outcomes and shaping the future of the University and broader Australian and global societies.

Our students and staff are learning and researching in collaboration with the Traditional Owners of the lands where our campuses are located, along with the Yolngu community in northeast Arnhem Land, and Indigenous peoples in Canada, New Zealand and Norway. An Indigenous Knowledge Institute, to open on the Parkville campus in 2020, will be Indigenous-led, focused on preserving and restoring Indigenous knowledge and supporting the wider teaching and understanding of Indigenous cultures.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Duncan Maskell, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous) Professor Shaun Ewen and Associate Dean (Indigenous) Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences Professor Sandra Eades reflect on their experiences at the University.
