Indigenous Alumni

John Moriarty was the first Indigenous student to graduate from Flinders University.  John graduated in 1971 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.  The following year saw another graduate, Ken Wanganeen, graduate with a Bachelor of Arts.  Since then there has been a steady increase in graduations with 15 students graduating in 2010 in a wide range of discplines including Law, Paramedics, Behavioural Science, Teaching and Nursing.

Yunggorendi is keen to stay in touch with its graduates and to support them in networking with each other and, as such, the University has established an Indigenous chapter of Alumni.
