Progressing diversity and inclusion

Curtin University continues to progress national reconciliation in the education sector with its Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2018-2020 and Interim Reconciliation Action Plan 2020-2022.

Curtin’s Reconciliation Action Plan

Curtin’s Reconciliation Action Plan journey has helped the University think more strategically about how the entire Curtin community – not just particular groups or areas – can advance reconciliation.

The University joined the RAP program in 2008, making it the first Australian teaching and research institution to develop and implement its own RAP.

Curtin has since made significant steps in achieving its cultural and leadership cornerstones. These include uniting with organisations to support the Uluru Statement from the Heart and progressing the Nowanup Bush Campus.

The University will continue to listen to First Nations Peoples to map out the next steps in our reconciliation journey.
