Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Leadership and Strategy
The University of Canberra acknowledges the Ngunnawal peoples as the traditional custodians of the land upon which the University's main campus sits, and pays respect to all Elders past and present.
OATSILS places a particular emphasis on working collaboratively with UC faculties and research institutes to: open more doors to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and create more opportunities to increase student completion rates, achieve parity in employment, and aspire to cultural competency and build capacity in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research.
