Acknowledgement of Melbourne's First Peoples

Wuy-Wrung or Wurundjeri people (Yarra) and the Boon wurrung are the first custodians and traditional owners of a large part of the land of inner and outer Melbourne. The symbol of the Wurundjeri is Bunjil the eagle and the symbol of the Boon wurrung is Waang the crow.

The University of Divinity (UDiv) and its Colleges acknowledge with respect the traditional custodians of this land and, in particular, the Wurundjeri and Boonwurung people of the Kulin nation.

We encourage and support UDiv staff and students to work creatively in implementing appropriate policies and practices in our various Colleges, in consultation with Indigenous leaders.

We recognise our responsibilities and opportunities as Christian educational institutions to respect and understand Australia's Indigenous peoples, to build a more just Australia and to commit ourselves to the work of reconciliation.
