Woolyungah Indigenous Centre is the University’s Centre responsible for Indigenous student recruitment, access and support. Our programs aim to foster equity by supporting Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 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.
The journey of obtaining a tertiary qualification isn’t solely about marks and exams. Woolyungah promotes a community environment where all Indigenous students are invited to have fun, network with other students and discover themselves as professionals. Each week during the University semester, Woolyungah’s student representatives organise free student social BBQs. We encourage all Indigenous students, whether commencing or continuing to come along and meet other students.
The University of Wollongong and Woolyungah Indigenous Centre hold events throughout the year to celebrate dates of importance to Australians, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous. 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 their culture.
