Nulungu Research Institute

Nulungu Research Institute is a Kimberley-based organisation of Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers, each with extensive practical and theoretical knowledge.

Located in Broome, Nulungu provides an Indigenous research and academic focus for the entire University – including the Notre Dame Fremantle and Sydney Campuses – and operates at local, regional, national and international levels.

Nulungu encourages the pursuit of excellence in research through valuing community-based Indigenous knowledge.  While Nulungu focuses on the core research themes of Culture Country Language, Education and Learning, Aboriginal Wellbeing and Health, and Cultural Security and Social Justice, research expertise covers a wide range of disciplines.

A key feature of Nulungu’s research profile is its collaboration with national and international academic institutions, teaching and research communities, government and industry, all within an Indigenous context. Nulungu has demonstrated the capacity to establish and maintain successful engagement across disciplines and professional fields, secure funding from a range of sources, and complete projects of relevance and priority to the Indigenous community.
