CDUS COMMITMENT TO INDIGENOUS EDUCATION The Charles Darwin University Indigenous Peoples Policy provides the framework to manage activities that impact upon the Indigenous community of the Northern Territory. Given the unique demography of the jurisdiction, with nearly 30% of its population being Indigenous, and the future likelihood of an even higher proportion, the Universitys engagement with the Indigenous community is a vital component of the economic and social development of the Northern Territory. This policy recognises the culture, history, uniqueness and diversity of the Indigenous community and commits to forging mutually benefi cial relationships with the Indigenous community, built upon a foundation of trust and respect. CDU has a commitment to creating an organisational culture and environment conducive to Indigenous engagement and this includes: The establishment of the Indigenous Academic Support Unit. The appointment of a Pro Vice Chancellor Indigenous Leadership with specifi c responsibilities across the whole institution. An Indigenous Employment policy. A School of Australian Indigenous Knowledge Systems dedicated to fostering and promoting research in Indigenous knowledge. Flexible teaching methodologies that cater for remote and rural communities. Teaching Yolngu Matha language at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
