What we do

What we do

The University of Wollongong and Woolyungah Indigenous Centre are committed to increasing the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People 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.

At UOW you'll have the freedom and support to make your own personal commitment to Indigenous culture.

Woolyungah promotes a community environment where all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students are invited to have fun, network with other students and discover themselves as professionals.

Woolyungah Indigenous Centre is also the centre for University engagement with local (Illawarra, South Coast, Southern Highlands and Sydney), Regional and National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations.
