We encourage staff, researchers, clinicians, and policy-makers to participate in Cultural Awareness and Cultural Safety training – a vital part of working with Aboriginal peoples.

University of Tasmania’s Strategic Plan for Aboriginal Engagement 2021-2024

The Strategic Plan for Aboriginal Engagement 2021-2024 seeks to build the University’s academic focus for Aboriginal student success, increase support and training to Indigenise its curricula, enhance cultural safety and governance across the University, and develop an Aboriginal Research Strategy. The plan asks how the University can embed Aboriginal success more deeply into its core operations. It explores how it can do this across workforce diversity, access to study, research, and governance.
