Indigenous Education Statement

The Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education requires information from higher education providers each year relating to their outcomes and future plans to meet ongoing responsibilities for Indigenous student achievement in higher education.

These responsibilities include assessing and reporting on progress towards improved educational outcomes for Indigenous Australians as defined in the goals of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Policy.

The Indigenous Education Statement is used to determine providers’ eligibility for Indigenous Support Program (ISP) funding.

The Indigenous Education Statement will also be used to provide a representation to the Review of Higher Education Access and Outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People on how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students access, participate and complete higher education at Australian Universities and the support provided by individual Universities.
