Flinders University has graduated over 240 students since its first graduate, John Moriarty, graduated in1971 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. John was followed closely in 1972 by Ken Wanganeen, who also graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours), after whom the University has named the Ken Wanganeen medal in recognition of not only his academic success but his involvement in campus life. Since that time the number of Indigenous graduands has steadily increased and the disciplines from which they have graduated become as diverse as law, paramedics, medicine, behavioural science, science, teaching and nursing.
The University and Yunggorendi are keen to stay in touch with Indigenous graduands and, as such, has established an Indigenous Alumni chapter.
