Pro Vice-Chancellor, First Nations Engagement
Location: New South Wales
Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange or Wagga Wagga campus
Charles Sturt University is a university of the land and people of our regions.
Acknowledging the culture and insight of Indigenous Australians, the University’s ethos is described by the Wiradjuri phrase yindyamarra winhanganha meaning the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in.
This phrase represents who we are at Charles Sturt University. It comes from traditional Indigenous Australian knowledge, but it also speaks to the mission of universities – to develop and spread wisdom to make the world a better place. We develop holistic, far-sighted people who help their communities grow and flourish.
We are now looking for a Pro Vice-Chancellor, First Nations Engagement who will provide strategic advice to senior leaders in the University and take an active leadership role across First Nations engagement, education and research in the University.
Reporting directly to the Vice-Chancellor, this role will lead the Office of First Nations Engagement which is responsible for the strategic oversight of the University’s First Nations Strategy, the university-wide Cultural Safety framework and ongoing advancement of the University’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
This role has strong involvement with, and requires a deep understanding of, the issues relating to and affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People, as well as an ability to build supportive relationships with First Nations communities from the lands on which Charles Sturt University campuses are located.
