Our vision for Reconciliation
Swinburne will be a place where reconciliation is core to our culture. We will ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are culturally safe and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander self-determination and knowledges are embedded across the university. We will find ways to express this through our strategic priorities of future-ready learners, research with impact, and innovative enterprise. It will shape the way we govern; how we work and employ our staff; our external partnerships; how we engage with students and develop their experience and learning; and the way we research and innovate. We will continue to develop our national thought leadership in reconciliation.
Swinburne was the first Australian university to achieve 'Elevate' status for our second Reconciliation Action Plan 2017–2019 and has also achieved 'Elevate' status for our third Reconciliation Action Plan 2020–2023.
