Kurongkurl Katitjin, Edith Cowan University’s Centre for Indigenous Australian Education and Research, plays a vital role in assisting the University to meet its commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We support University-wide activities and programs, as well as activities specific to Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their cultures. This includes:

  • engaging closely with Indigenous people and communities;
  • assisting Indigenous students and staff to realise their full potential;
  • ensuring that individual differences and diversity are respected; and
  • contributing to Indigenous community development and sustainability through our students, staff and graduates.

ECU’s Indigenous programs date back to 1975, when the Aboriginal Teacher Education Program was first established at the Mount Lawley Campus.
