Indigenous futures at CDU
Charles Darwin University aims to be actively engaged in Indigenous cultures and traditions. Stimulating research, training and education, our programs are mutually beneficial for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
We are proud to be located in the Northern Territory where almost 30 per cent of the population is Indigenous and owns most of the landmass.
Indigenous participation at Charles Darwin University
Charles Darwin University recognises that post-secondary education is crucial to ensuring that Indigenous people can access improved employment opportunities. Of equal significance are the roles universities can play in the development of Indigenous community leaders.
CDU is renowned for its research expertise and leadership in tropical and desert knowledge of the Australian and Asia-Pacific region, with particular focus on Indigenous knowledge and addressing problems of importance to the peoples of the region.
