Support Us

There has never been a more critical time for our nation to work towards improved democratic participation, societal equity and economic opportunity for Indigenous Australians.

Our vision is to embed Indigenous equity and engagement across every part of the University in order to better serve the nation. Your donation to the First Nations Strategic Priorities Fund will directly benefit First Nations peoples, by providing flexible funding to support the work of the First Nations Portfolio.

Funding purposes will align with the strategic priorities of the Vice-President (First Nations), Professor Peter Yu AM. Our goals are ambitious and continue to evolve in response to the urgent new challenges that First Nations peoples are facing.

Acknowledgement of Country

ANU acknowledges the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people, who are the Traditional Owners of the land upon which the University’s Acton campus is located.

This Ngunnawal-Ngambri land supports students throughout their time at ANU. It will continue to hold a space for future generations to come together, and learn from Country and one another.

We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, Indigenous peoples, past, present and future, and acknowledge that this land from which we benefit has an ancient history that is both rich and sacred.

The ANU community makes a commitment to always respect the land upon which we stand and ensure that the voices of this land’s Indigenous peoples are both heard and listened to so that we may move towards a future marked by cooperation and mutual respect.
