8-15 JULY, 2018
CQUniversity respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and learn, and pay respect to the First Nations Peoples and the elders, past, present and future.
This year, during NAIDOC Week we encourage all staff, students and alumni to embrace the theme of Because of her, we can! In doing so we will celebrate the essential role that Indigenous women have played – and continue to play – as active and significant role models in our communities.
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
CQUniversity is committed to delivering on its Reconciliation Action Plan launched in 2017. It highlights the importance of special Indigenous events such as NAIDOC Week and how our staff can participate in them. As such, CQUni will be hosting numerous events across our footprint from special movie screenings to yarning circles and lunches.
For a comprehensive list of all the activities that CQUni will be participating in as part of NAIDOC Week, head to our events page.
Because of her, we can!
