This statement, required annually by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education, reports on ECU outcomes and future plans to meet ongoing responsibilities for Indigenous student achievement in higher education.
ECU recognises that a significant outcome of European settlement has been the social, political, economic and educational disadvantage suffered by many Indigenous people in Australia. We are committed to reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and this has been documented in our Statement of Reconciliation published in 1988.
ECU’s Statement of Commitment to Indigenous Australians was launched in 2005. It reflects the commitments we make in our Strategic Plan, Reconciliation Statement, Student Charter and high order Functional Plans. The Statement assists in our planning and in the provision of a supportive learning environment for Indigenous Australian students and staff.
