Swinburne’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) builds on our long-standing commitment to self-determination, Indigenous knowledges and cultural safety.
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.
"Through implementing an Elevate RAP, Swinburne joins an elite group of organisations that have gone above and beyond ‘business as usual’ to embed reconciliation in core business practices and decision-making at the highest level."
