Embedded in the University's core values is an unwavering commitment to cultural inclusivity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples designed to ensure that your time here is a positive experience, leads to successful outcomes and occurs in a culturally save environment.
Yunggorendi Student Engagement, Office of Indigenous Strategy and Engagement, plays vital role in realising this commitment through its vision of ensuring that Flinders is the university of choice for Indigenous Australians.
We seek positive transformation of Indigenous social, political and economic life and well-being through supporting the higher education aspirations of Indigenous peoples.

academic support and advocacy through the duration of your degree
cultural safe study space and common room including access to computers, photocopiers and scanning services
Our philosophy is to work with Indigenous students to empower each student to take responsibility for their own educational journey.
