We demonstrate a strong commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and a history of leadership in Indigenous education.
Of our 44,000 students, we have some 500 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students currently studying from undergraduate to PhD level.
In 2001 QUT Council adopted the Reconciliation Statement (PDF file, 1028.8 KB). Over the next 10 years this policy was used to enable directed improvements in the areas of teaching and learning, research, community service, employment and organisational culture. An Indigenous Employment Strategy has been in place since 2002, and in 2006 the first Professor of Indigenous Studies was appointed.
In 2015 we launched the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Action Plan (PDF file, 4169.39 KB) to replace the Reconciliation Action Plan and support Blueprint 4. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Action Plan brings together the strategies of Blueprint 4 and focuses on four elements:
In 2010 our strategic plan, Blueprint 3, reaffirmed and refocused our commitment to reconciliation. In 2012 our Reconciliation Action Plan was adopted by QUT Council.
It's important to be aware of and sensitive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the Indigenous peoples of Australia. There's an inconsistent understanding about the appropriate and correct way of referring to Australia's Indigenous peoples. This guide outlines our preferred approach to using correct terminology.

Established in 1991, the Oodgeroo Unit is the centre of our activities in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education, studies and research. The Oodgeroo Unit is committed to developing better access to university education for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and promoting higher levels of participation in tertiary education.
We offer four units as part of the Indigenous Knowledges minor, inviting students to critically reflect on their own understandings and challenging them to develop personal standpoints as they examine the limitations of dominant perspectives in Australian society. The minor draws on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge systems and perspectives while disrupting and critiquing existing systems of knowing and being.
Our Indigenous Studies Research Network is a virtual multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary network of Indigenous researchers and research affiliates from Australia and abroad, with a focus no recognition and respect for Indigenous peoples' sovereignties. The network promotes sharing and exchanging knowledge, research, solutions and information within the Indigenous studies global community.
The National Indigenous Research and Knowledges Network (NIRAKN) is a national, inclusive, multidisciplinary hub and spokesmodel network of Indigenous researchers at various stages of their careers.
NIRAKN members represent over 50 Aboriginal nations, as well as 21 collaborating universities, the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) and five partner organisations:
The network is led by Indigenous senior scholars with strong research track records who bring extensive experience in collaborative and community-based research.
Our Indigenous Employment Strategy outlines our approach and commitment to increasing employment and development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The strategy aims for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff representation to be 1.7 per cent of the total university workforce.
Our Indigenous Education and Employment Committee advises university management on matters within the university relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander affairs. The committee works through the Vice-Chancellor, the Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor, the Director of the Oodgeroo Unit, and through committees like our Learning and Teaching Committee, University Research and Innovation Committee, and Indigenous Employment Reference Group.
Our goals for Indigenous representation at our university are guided by our key performance indicators for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff and students, which include:
We monitor the access, representation, success, retention and attrition of student equity target groups, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. You can read our most recent Equity reports to see how we're tracking.
