We provide a culturally safe environment for our students, staff and communities through recognition of our First Peoples

Griffith has the largest Indigenous-student population of any Queensland university, and the second largest number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academic staff in Australia.

Through our work with Indigenous Elders, we continue to develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement strategies and partnerships for community empowerment, as well as a curriculum informed by respect for the knowledge systems of our First Peoples.

Our Indigenous research development also aims to further the aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and promote reconciliation, respect, education and engagement.
