Commitment to Reconciliation

Notre Dame values the importance of a whole of University approach that recognises and builds on existing commitments to Indigenous education and respect for Indigenous peoples throughout Australia.  It is committed to providing strong support for the process of Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

To promote and integrate the mission of Reconciliation across all Campuses, the University established the Nulungu Research Institute in 2008.

Located on the Broome Campus but with a whole of University focus, the Institute focuses on teaching, research, cultural outreach and cultural training.  It is seen as a highly significant initiative, offering the opportunity to create new partnerships across the University that strengthen and extend the University’s mission to promote Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples of Australia.

The University acknowledges that the Broome Campus is located on Yawuru Country, the Fremantle Campus is located on Noongar Country and the Sydney Campus is located on Cadigal Country.
