Welcome to the Consultation Draft of the University of Melbourne’s second Reconciliation Action Plan

The University of Melbourne’s vision for reconciliation is to contribute to the creation of a new kind of relationship between Australians – a holistic, inclusive, two-way relationship based on respect for the unique place that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples hold as the original custodians of Australia with a history of continuous connection that goes back 40,000 to 60,000 years.

This relationship requires that each of us develops understanding and deep respect for the cultures, knowledge and values of the many clans and language groups who make up Indigenous Australia. This draft has been developed based on input from stakeholders across the University including suggestions made at discussion meetings with Indigenous Elders, Indigenous staff and students, and Administrative Divisions, as well as suggestions received on-line via the Reconciliation at Melbourne website.
