The ISP is the result of more than 2,500 unique engagements and over 15,000 ideas, opinions and comments shared by Indigenous and non-Indigenous individuals across both campuses and our Indigenous community partners.

The comprehensive engagement process took place over the 2019/20 school year and centered on three themes: Research, Learning & Teaching; and Service.

The feedback received was collated, analysed and ultimately culminated in the eight goals and 43 actions the university will collectively take to advance our vision.
