THE UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE
The University has developed a strong relationship and partnership with the Aboriginal community in the Goulburn Valley over many years. The collaboration is shown through a number of initiatives including:
The Academy of Sport Health and Education
The Munarra Regional Centre of Excellence
The annual Dungala Kaiela Oration
The 7th October 2011 saw the University sign a memorandum of understanding with the Kaiela Institute to formalise their partnership and the commitment to engage productively with the Indigenous community in the Goulburn Valley.
The University established Murrup Barak - Melbourne Institute for Indigenous Development in 2009, to increase the impact of the University of Melbourne's Indigenous programs and to maximise its contribution to Indigenous development.
