ECU acknowledges and respects the continuing association with Nyoongar people, the traditional custodians of the land, upon which its campuses stand and programs operate. ECU has a commitment to:
- engage closely with Indigenous people and communities;
- fully develop Indigenous students and staff, assisting them to realise their potential;
- ensure that individual differences and diversity are respected; and
- contribute positively to Indigenous community development and sustainability through its students, staff, and graduates.
Kurongkurl Katitjin, ECU's Centre for Indigenous Australian Education and Research, plays a vital role in assisting the University to meet its commitment to Indigenous peoples.
Reconciliation Action Plan
ECU reinforced its commitment to Reconciliation with the release of the 2012 - 2015 Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). The inaugural plan was launched in 2011.
