William Cooper Institute

The William Cooper Institute connects research, learning and engagement for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and communities across and within the University through the establishment of a ‘hub-and-spoke’ model of Indigenous leadership and participation.

The Institute also oversees the development of targeted strategies to increase the participation of Indigenous students across the country, implements comprehensive engagement programs with secondary schools, and strengthens connections with Indigenous community-controlled organisations to build greater awareness of the University’s educational offerings, pathways, entry schemes, scholarships and support programs.
