Our Reconciliation Action Plan sets the strategy on how the ANU College of Science and the ANU College of Health & Medicine are committed to reducing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
The University’s vision for reconciliation is to be a place of learning that respects Indigenous culture and diversity: a place where Indigenous and non-Indigenous people come together to engage with their chosen discipline, contextualized by an understanding of our shared history. ANU will make an important contribution to reconciliation by furthering scholarly learning, research and public knowledge of Indigenous issues. ANU will be a place where Indigenous culture is both respected and celebrated.
In advancing these University goals, the ANU Joint Colleges of Science will provide a supportive learning environment where Indigenous Australians can realise their potential and achieve their aspirations. The Colleges will make a significant contribution to improving higher education and employment outcomes for Indigenous Australians. They will have strong and mutually beneficial partnerships with local, national and international Indigenous communities, with a particularly strong focus on making a world-leading contribution in research and teaching in Indigenous Health and Indigenous Natural Resource Management. These relationships will provide for the sharing of knowledge and ideas and the opportunity to listen and learn from Indigenous Australians about the past, their current circumstances and their vision for the future.
