First Nations Portfolio

‘Nothing about us without us.’

There has never been a more critical time for our nation to work towards improved democratic participation, societal equity and economic opportunity for Indigenous Australians.

Our vision is to embed Indigenous equity and engagement across every part of the University in order to better serve the nation.

Your donation to the First Nations Strategic Priorities Fund will directly benefit First Nations peoples, by providing flexible funding to support the work of the First Nations Portfolio. Funding purposes will align with the strategic priorities of the Vice-President (First Nations), Professor Peter Yu AM (see below). Our goals are ambitious and continue to evolve in response to the urgent new challenges that First Nations peoples are facing.
