ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt has officially launched a new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural learning program for staff and students.
The program was launcheded as part of the 2018 Reconciliation Week Lecture which featured a speech by the University's inaugural Indigenous Postdoctoral Fellow Dr Virginia Marshall.
Professor Schmidt said he is proud that ANU is the first higher education institution to partner with the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies to adopt the Core Cultural Learning program.
"We share a vision to lead research, promote knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and to partner with Indigenous Australia in these endeavours to promote reconciliation," he said.
"As Australia's national university, ANU has a responsibility to furthering reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Australians."
Staff and students can now access a full range of modules via Wattle and Pulse.
