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".
"ECU has opened my eyes to so many opportunities."
Research is a high priority for Kurongkurl Katitjin, most notably, but not exclusively, through the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet.
Examples of our research include:

The audacious golden exterior of the latest architectural addition to ECU’s Joondalup Campus is a clear sign of its rapid development as a vibrant, globally-focused University.
