Indigenous Alumni


Stay connected for life


Flinders University has graduated over 350 Indigenous students since its first Indigenous student, John Moriarty, graduated in 1971 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. 

John was followed closely by the late Ken Wanganeen, who graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in 1973. The University named the Ken Wanganeen Medal in recognition of Ken for not only his academic success but also his involvement in campus life. 

Since that time the number of Indigenous graduates has steadily increased and the disciplines from which they have come from are now as diverse as law, paramedics, medicine, behavioural science, science, teaching and nursing.

The University and the Office of Indigenous Strategy & Engagement are keen to stay in touch with Indigenous graduates and, as such, have established an Indigenous Alumni Network. 

Commencing in 2016 this network will provide opportunities for alumni to network with fellow graduates and provide the latest information about the Indigenous Alumni of Flinders, the Office of Indigenous Strategy & Engagement as well as the broader University.
