The DVC (R&D) Professorial Lecture Series resumes in 2017, introducing newly appointed Professors to the Swinburne Community, cultivating an environment of shared knowledge and fostering a culture of collaboration.

The series continues with Professor Andrew Gunstone and his presentation: ‘Indigenous Australians and the Australian Higher Education Sector’.

Professor Andrew Gunstone

Professor Andrew Gunstone is the inaugural Executive Director (Reconciliation Strategy and Leadership) and Professor of Indigenous Studies at Swinburne University. He has over 130 publications, including eight books, and has been awarded several grants from the Australian Research Council, the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies and National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education. His research interests are in Indigenous studies, history, politics and education, specifically in stolen wages, reconciliation, reparative justice and higher education policies. He is the Foundation Editor of the Journal of Australian Indigenous Issues.

Over many decades, the Australian Higher Education sector has struggled to genuinely address the educational needs of Indigenous Australians. ‘Indigenous Australians and the Australian Higher Education Sector’, will discuss a number of interrelated factors – leadership, governance, culture, employment, student support, engagement, teaching and learning, research – that are essential in enabling the sector to address this critical area.

Please join us as Andrew speaks about these issues and more.
