Indigenous Education and Research Centre

IERC About Us

In 2014 the University undertook a restructure that transformed 18 schools into seven Colleges. At that same time, JCU signaled its intention to establish a unified Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Centre.

In partnership with JCU divisions, colleges and directorates the Centre, proposed to be honour named, provides leadership and coordination across the University for student and community engagement, education and research relating to Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Centre consolidates and develops the University's strengths in Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholarship and research, and reaffirm JCU's intellectual leadership in public policy debates.
