Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Engagement

These programs are currently under review for offering in 2020 during the COVID-19 period. At this time, they are currently not on offer. 

Leading Through Culture

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Year 9 students across selected In2Uni high schools are invited to participate in a 2 day on-campus cultural leadership program.

A collaboration between UOW and the Department of Education, the Leading Through Culture Program is embedded with cultural knowledge and activities, whilst also fostering leadership capabilities through engaging in UOW faculty workshops. Students complete the program by using the concept of design thinking to take part in a collaborative Leadership Action Project within their school community. 

Koori Aspirations Program

The aim of the Koori Aspirations Program is to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students in the South Western Sydney, Southern Highlands and Wollongong regions to build their awareness of, and aspirations towards higher education and other post school options. By participating in the Koori Aspirations Program, students will be equipped to make improved career and pathway decisions to prepare them for life beyond school.
