GUMURRII Student Success Unit events

Hands Up!

Each year, the GUMURRII Hands Up! pre-orientation program for commencing undergraduate students introduces students to the range of services offered and helps them to adapt to University life. Over a week long program, students are connected with the Griffith and GUMURRII community.

Campus orientation

Each trimester we host campus orientation sessions for new students. The sessions cover:

  • staff introductions, roles and student support services
  • unit facilities such as printing access codes, swipe cards, room bookings
  • a campus tour
  • safety and after-hours access
  • First Peoples Tutoring for Success Program (TSP) and scholarships.

You'll also participate in a trimester planning workshop to ensure you're familiar with your courses, learning objectives and assessment dates. You will have the opportunity to network and meet current students in a relaxed setting and have any other questions answered.

During COVID-19 restrictions, orientation activities have been delivered online to ensure the safety of our communities.





Annual dates of cultural significance

Each year we acknowledge and engage in a number of events important to Indigenous Australian history, people and culture which draw together staff and students in a spirit of reconciliation. You can find out more at the First Peoples site.
