ECU is committed to finding ways to introduce an Indigenous perspective across our programs and policies, including the appointment and advancement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff. Our commitment is reflected in the following official statements.
This statement, required annually by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, 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.
