Our vision

Through creativity, collaboration and inclusion we seek and solve problems to improve life on earth.
We listen, challenge, create and share diverse knowledge about people, place and cultures to enable lives with purpose.

As a student in our faculty, you’ll work in partnership with us. We have a diverse range of disciplines where you’ll develop unique and career-ready skills. Together, we’ll turn creativity and critical thinking into real-life solutions.

With us, you’ll challenge and be challenged to push the way we think about people, place and cultures. You’ll thrive in an open, supportive and inclusive community that encourages and celebrates your difference.

Acknowledgement of Country

UNSW Sydney’s Kensington and Paddington campuses are built on Aboriginal Lands.

We pay our respects to the Bidjigal and Gadigal peoples who are the Custodians of these lands. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the First Australians, whose lands, winds and waters we all now share, and pay respect to their unique values, and their continuing and enduring cultures which deepen and enrich the life of our nation and communities.

As a community, UNSW Arts, Design & Architecture acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have survived and thrived through centuries of systemic injustice, exclusion, and erasure. As a new faculty, it is our priority to develop an Indigenous Strategy that is collaboratively developed, productive and purposeful to affect long-term change in the educational outcomes of Indigenous students and the intellectual and cultural integrity of Indigenous teaching and research across the faculty.
