Respect for Australian Indegenous cultures

            Wominjeka. This means "Welcome" in the Victorian Aboriginal language of the Wurundjeri people.

            In Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture it is respectful to formally Wominjeka (welcome) people to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander country or land. At RMIT we do this with the following acknowledgement:

            We would like to acknowledge Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations as the Traditional Owners of the land on which the University stands. We respectfully recognise Elders past, present and future.

            At RMIT we recognise and respect the unique culture and contribution that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people bring to our communities. We are also proud to provide study, cultural, & personal support to our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander students in their learning journey. We wominjeka you to further explore and experience more about Australian Indigenous culture by enrolling in our Indigenous specialist courses, visiting our Indigenous education centre - Ngarara Willim Centre and interacting with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff and students.

            Our commitment to Indigenous education

            RMIT's Act (PDF 756.9kb 69p)?legally endorses our commitment to ‘use our expertise and resources to involve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia in its teaching, learning, research and advancement of knowledge activities and thereby contribute to:

            • realising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander aspirations
            • safeguarding of the ancient and rich Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage'.

            Further to this our Strategic and Academic Plans also strengthens our commitment to engaging with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Our Equity and Diversity Plan clearly explains this commitment:

            RMIT recognises the inherent value of Indigenous Australian perspectives to the University. The University aims to position itself as both an employer of choice and preferred place to study for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. RMIT has undertaken a firm commitment to contribute to, and lead in, the areas of reconciliation and Indigenous community development. The University values cultural diversity, believes all staff and students should be treated with dignity and respect and seeks to contribute to creating a nation that provides equal life chances for all and works in collaboration with its Indigenous heritage.
