We acknowledge that the Innovation Campus is located on traditional Aboriginal land, parallel to the ocean, between Mount Keira and the sea. Our community is on a path to reconcilliation. We are committed to providing a safe community where Australia’s First Nations people can feel heard, seen and respected.

We Acknowledge that Country for Aboriginal peoples is an
interconnected set of ancient and sophisticated relationships.
The University of Wollongong spreads across many interrelated
Aboriginal Countries that are bound by this sacred landscape, and
intimate relationship with that landscape since creation.
From Sydney to the Southern Highlands, to the South Coast.
From fresh water to bitter water to salt. From City to Urban to Rural.
The University of Wollongong Acknowledges the custodianship of
the Aboriginal peoples of this place and space that has kept alive the
relationships between all living things.
The University Acknowledges the devastating impact of colonisation on
our campuses’ footprint and commit ourselves to truth-telling, healing
and education.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Additional to the ISU, the UOW provides programs, services and facilities through the Woolyungah Indigenous Centre (WIC) that encourage and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from entry to University, through to successful completion.
