Strategy and vision
Strategic outlook and vision
The Indigenous Strategy 2016 – 2025 takes a long-term view and aligns with existing Macquarie University frameworks and strategic plans to enhance our aspiration to achieve Indigenous excellence.
The strategy provides a coherent vision for Macquarie University’s future across the major activities that lead to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander success. The strategy is underpinned by Macquarie University’s commitment to Indigenous access and participation at our University.
The Indigenous Strategy provides the right balance between investment in education and research capabilities and the critical enabling infrastructure and student services required, to support and maximise the University’s role in increasing access, participation and success for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Through the following three key pillars, the University is committed to:
1. Baduwa (Inspire)
Unlocking the capacity and building the aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff through increased access to and opportunity for tertiary education.
2. Manawari (Discover)
Developing cultural capability and discovering new and innovative ways of embedding Indigenous knowledges and perspectives into curriculum to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff in the discovery of new paradigms.
3. Djurali (Evolve)
Empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff to evolve, to be responsive to change and to embrace the entire world.
