Welcome from the Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Leadership

Maree Meredith


That’s welcome, in Ngunnawal language.

At UC, we want to walk with and work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to create a better future.

To do that, we need to understand, grow and celebrate Indigenous leadership – which we do through our courses, our research and programs that partner with community.

We have adopted an outside-in approach. We are demonstrating our commitment to helping improve the lives of First Nations people by listening to communities, empower Indigenous people and work together to create solutions.

Because we value Indigenous knowledge and Indigenous culture, our approach to Indigenous Leadership involves sharing opportunities and cultural insights with all people – both in Australia and internationally. First Nations people have rich cultures, knowledge and also potential – and UC is committed to building networks and opportunities that enable growth.

We are privileged to be based on Ngunnawal country, with the opportunity to share and engage with First Nations people from across Australia and around the world.

So whatever your language, whatever your country, we look forward to welcoming you to engage with us at UC.
