ICEPP is the Office of Indigenous Community Engagement, Policy and Partnerships at Griffith University.
ICEPP provides the University advice on Indigenous higher education and works on initiatives that contribute to the spiritual, social, emotional, economic and educational wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, and to the wellbeing of Indigenous people from other parts of the world.
Under the directorship of Professor of Indigenous Policy, Boni Robertson, the office also acts as a conduit between the University and other educational institutions, businesses, professional agencies, government departments and the broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to advocate on Indigenous matters.
ICEPP is also the secretariat for the Griffith University Council of Elders, and the Indigenous Women's Research Consortium.
