What We Do
The University of Wollongong and Woolyungah Indigenous Centre are committed to increasing the participation of Indigenous Australians in tertiary education. We provide programs and facilities that encourage and support Indigenous Australians from entry to University, through to successful completion.
At Woolyungah, our goal is to guide students through their academic programs and the challenges of tertiary study so that the time spent at UOW is both enjoyable and enriching. Educational advancement is recognised as vital in realising social justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Pursuing tertiary study is often rewarding and empowering and can create opportunities that Indigenous Australians have historically had limited access to.
The centre provides tutorial assistance and access to facilities such as computer rooms, study areas, a kitchen and common room area.
Woolyungah Indigenous Centre holds events throughout the year to celebrate dates of importance to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Participation in events such as Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week provide an opportunity for university staff, students and the local Indigenous community to come together and celebrate culture.
Woolyungah promotes a community environment where all Indigenous students are invited to have fun, network with other students and discover themselves as professionals.
