The University of Newcastle has a nationally recognised history of achievement in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education and actively pursues a "whole-of university" commitment to Indigenous collaboration.

The Indigenous Strategy and Leadership team have developed the Cultural Capability Framework 2020-2025.The framework has been co-designed with key stakeholders within the University and externally to progress staff from Cultural Awareness to Cultural Responsiveness. The Cultural Capability Framework sits within the Indigenous Education and Research Framework and aligns with the University of Newcastle Reconciliation Action Plan and Student Success Strategy.

Event objectives

The Framework is supported by Cultural Capability training. The training opportunities will be strategically rolled out to staff in the form of:

- 3 x 20min online modules

- 1 x 3hr face-to-face session with facilitator in strategic groups (maximum of 30 participants per session)

- ½ day or full day on country experience options

- Ongoing support and advice provided by the Office of Indigenous Strategy and Leadership

Creating a culturally safe and responsive environment is the responsibility of all staff at the University of Newcastle, to find out more information access the Cultural Capability Framework Plan on a Page.
