Reconciliation

The Australian National University Strategic Plan 2017-2021 has, at its core, The Need for Change. One of the five areas identified as a Need for Change is Delivering on our Unique National Responsibilities-Our responsibility to Indigenous Australia. The Strategic Plan states ‘As Australia’s national university one of our defining roles has been to contribute to the advancement of Australia’s Indigenous peoples. We contribute by graduating Indigenous students, as well as through game-changing research and direct engagement with Indigenous communities. We provide an environment for debating the big issues and partnering with Indigenous Australia to advance the status, recognition and lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

 Although the proportion of Indigenous students at ANU is high by the standards of some of our peer universities, we remain far from parity with the population at large for undergraduates. The proportion of postgraduate and higher degree students is lower again, as is the proportion of professional and academic staff. Through targeted activities we will work towards achieving parity with the proportion of Indigenous Australians in the overall population.

 Research focused on Indigenous issues is broad in scope and has made a substantial contribution. ANU has strong Indigenous research leaders in a number of disciplines. However, our continued salience requires constant attention to impact, partnership with Indigenous communities and a commitment to novel and multidisciplinary approached to our work.’

The ANU College of Business and Economics acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities as the traditional custodians of this land. Our vision is for an Australia that provides equal opportunities for all, while recognising and respecting the special place, culture and contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first Australians. The College is committed to closing the gap that exists for Indigenous people and will work towards this goal through the actions outlined in our Reconciliation Action Plan in the areas of students, staff, research, education, outreach, visitors and infrastructure.

Acknowledgement of country

We begin all public events with an acknowledgement of traditional owners or a Welcome to Country.

The official wording for all ANU Acknowledgement of Country is:
I acknowledge and celebrate the First Australians on whose traditional lands we meet, and pay my respects to the elders past, present and emerging.

Sensitive warnings

When publishing documents and websites which feature images of Indigenous people the following word should be used:
ANU recognises that to some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, it is distressing to show images of people who have died. We would like to advise that this publication/website may contain such images.
