UNSW School of Social Sciences strongly supports the university’s commitment to celebrate and respect Indigenous knowledge and recognise the distinctive social justice aspirations and rights of Indigenous Australians. We aim to embed this commitment into our research, learning and teaching, and engagement activities.

UNSW School of Social Sciences Acknowledgement

UNSW Sydney’s Kensington campus, where our school is located, is built on the land of the Aboriginal people. We pay our respects to the Bedegal people of the Eora nation who are the Custodians of this land. 

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.
