Diversity and inclusion

The Faculty of Education acknowledges, respects and engages with diversity in all its forms, and we are committed to a genuine culture of equity, diversity and inclusion for all our community.

Indigenous Australians

The faculty acknowledges the First Nation’s peoples of Australia, their custodianship of the land, and their educational, knowledge and cultural traditions.

We are committed to advancing Indigenous development and wellbeing across all aspects of our work, and to develop the strength and depth of the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians.

The Faculty of Education Diversity & Inclusion strategy is committed to actively supporting the Faculty of Education's Divisional Indigenous Development Plan.

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are core values at the Faculty of Education. We are committed to fostering cultures of respect, dignity, accessibility, and inclusion in which diversity is celebrated across all domains of our work and in our work with partner organisations.

We recognise and support multiple ways of being and strive to ensure that the dignity of individuals and groups is respected and maintained. We recognise the many axes of diversity, including for instance racial, cultural, ethnicity, socio-economic, sexuality, linguistic, gender, spiritual, religious, age, community, disability and neurodiversity.

The faculty is dedicated to leading and supporting behaviours and practices that enable inclusion across all our activities (digital and physical) to ensure the wellbeing of our staff and students.
