Celebrating 50 Years of Indigenous Programs

This year, Monash University is proud to be celebrating 50 years of Indigenous programs, including support for Indigenous people to study and work at Monash and a diverse range of research and courses in Aboriginal history, anthropology, culture, identity and literature.

A highlight of this history is the Monash Orientation Scheme for Aborigines (MOSA). MOSA was the first program of its kind in Australia and provided opportunities to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from all across the country to study at Monash. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the program's launch.

To celebrate this amazing history, the Yulendj Indigenous Engagement Unit, in conjunction with the Monash Indigenous Centre and the MSA Indigenous Department, will be hosting several events and forums through the year.


In addition to the First Peoples Forums, other events will be held throughout the year. Please check back here for more information. If you would like to host an event in your faculty or division, please contact the Yulendj Indigenous Engagement Unit on 9902 4972.
