Preparing for Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week runs from 27 May to 3 June 2019 and Flinders University is preparing to host a range of activities in line with this year’s theme – Grounded in truth, walk together with courage.

Activities and discussions next week centre around inviting all Australians to explore how we can contribute to achieving reconciliation by improving knowledge of shared histories, cultures and achievements. A range of events will encourage immersion in discussion, unlearning and relearning knowledge, and increasing activity towards a unified future.

Flinders University recognises the unique position of Indigenous Australians as First Nations people and is committed to Indigenous education and engagement.
