Indigenous Strategy Leadership Committee
The Vice-Chancellor leads the development and implementation of our Indigenous Strategy.
The Indigenous Strategy Leadership Committee consists of senior leaders (the Senior Leadership Team) and senior representatives of the University’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. The senior leaders have direct accountability for the achievement of the Strategy.
Cultural awareness training
There are two cultural awarness training courses available to staff at VU through HR Zone.
The Yulendj Warrung online Indigenous Cultural Awareness program is designed to raise awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in the teaching, learning and community engagement of all university staff.
The program offers participants the opportunity to hear from indigenous staff on matters such as the historical and contemporary experiences of indigenous peoples.
The Story Teller is a cultural education resource that is delivered face-to-face. It provides knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, society and culture from a generic and non-political perspective.
The experience deals specifically with cross-cultural awareness and is directed to those involved in working with or employing Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander individuals.
