Indigenous Department

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that this website may contain the names, images and voices of deceased peoples which may cause sadness or distress.

Our job in the UMSU Indigenous Department is to give voice to the Indigenous students to ensure they have the best university experience possible. We also believe in promoting cross-cultural awareness and dialogue. This year we hope to run a number of events for Indigenous students which will also be open to the broader community. We are looking forward to collaborating more closely with out fellow student representatives this coming year so that we can help create a fun and inclusive university campus for all students!

UMSU and the University of Melbourne acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands on which our campuses are situated. We pay our respects to Elders both past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

To learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and knowledge, feel free to contact the Murrup Barak Institute at the University.
