Victoria University is committed to promoting the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in:

  • education

  • research

  • knowledge exchange

  • employment.

Indigenous strategy

The Victoria University Bathelmun Yalingwa Strategy 2017-2020 outlines the commitment of the University to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders’ opportunity and success, particularly in our heartland, the west of Melbourne.

This commitment not only encompasses the success of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff but also the role we play as a regional leader in raising awareness and addressing challenges.

Indigenous Student Success Programme (ISSP)

The ISSP is an annual report submitted to the Commonwealth Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.

It reflects VU's performance against enrolments, progression and completions and our key strategies to meet these outcomes.

Indigenous careers strategy

The Yannoneit Indigenous Employment and Career Development Strategy is part of VU’s ongoing commitment to equality and diversity.

VU is committed to the increase of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people employed at VU. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are interested in career opportunities are encouraged to register with VU to receive job alerts, opportunities and upcoming community training events. Please contact our Indigenous Employment and Community Liaison Officer for further information or assistance.

The strategy encourages the recruitment and career development of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It provides opportunities to gain professional qualifications, work skills and experience in a wide range of jobs at VU.
