Welcome to Kurongkurl Katitjin, Centre for Indigenous Australian Education and Research at Edith Cowan University.
Kurongkurl Katitjin, pronounced koor-ong-kurl cut-it-chin, is a Nyoongar phrase meaning “coming together to learn”.
Our mission is to “provide excellence in teaching, learning and research in a culturally inclusive environment that values the diversity of Indigenous Australian history and cultural heritage".
"The course has given me the knowledge I need to move forwards personally and professionally"
Research is a high priority for Kurongkurl Katitjin, most notably, but not exclusively, through the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet.
