Community engagement

We have close relationships with Indigenous communities through partnerships, events and a number of campuses located in rural areas.

Partnerships with Indigenous organisations & communities funding »

Together with the ANU College of Science, the ANU College of Health & Medicine has established a fund to facilitate academic staff mobility in visiting various Indigenous communities and schools.

Indigenous Professional Staff Traineeship Program »

The ANU College of Health & Medicine and the ANU College of Science offer Indigenous students the opportunity to take on a one-or two-year traineeship. The trainees will work in a specific function within Science Administration for four days a week and spend one day a week training, with the aim of building a career-path to full-time work at ANU as a professional staff member.
