At Swinburne, we conduct research projects with Indigenous organisations, industry groups and other universities that focus on contributing to Australia’s economic and social objectives. Our aim is to provide high-impact research and partnerships creating positive change for Indigenous peoples, our students, staff and the wider Australian community.
We commit to research projects that directly support Indigenous peoples’ engagement in higher education studies, employment and career progression through our Reconciliation Action Plan.
Find out more about how our research projects are engaging with Indigenous organisations, industry groups and other universities via our Indigenous Research page.
