Support Indigenous secondary school students to understand their educational futures and expand their career horizons. 


We are a new world university. Like our namesake, Charles Darwin, we think differently. We innovate, embrace change, challenge conventions and look for better ways. We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. We care about people as individuals, and about our wider society. We’re about what we can give to the world, rather than what we take. We cannot build a new world without diversity of thought, so we bring together people with unique perspectives in an inclusive and supporting learning environment to help them connect, discover and grow. This is the CDU difference.


The Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Leadership and Regional Outreach (OPVCILRO) provides leadership to the University to achieve its goal of becoming globally recognised for Indigenous leadership in education. CDU’s commitment to this goal includes the development of innovative programs informed by local and national agendas that improve Indigenous participation, create and maintain culturally-enriched and culturally-safe environments to enhance learning partnerships between Indigenous students, staff and community, and to increase Indigenous staffing.
