In a collaboration between the Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor (Inclusion & Outreach) and the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Education), the fourth round of Jindaola Grants have been awarded for the year 2020.
The successful recipients of this years’ grant funding are:
• School of Humanities and Social Inquiry (LHA),
• School of Accounting, Economics & Finance (BUS),
• Student Diversity, Outreach and Co-curricular (PVCS), and;
• UOW College Australia
These newly formed interdisciplinary teams will join a flourishing community of previous Jindaola participants.
The multi-awarded program has successfully been led by the Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor Inclusion & Outreach and strongly supported by LTC, in consultation with local Elders and Knowledge holders since 2016.
Following an approach modelled on traditional Aboriginal systems for maintaining knowledge integrity, Jindaola has birthed the emerging concept of curriculum reconciliation, which is currently being enacted by program participants and local Aboriginal community members.
The most recent grant recipients will officially begin in late February at their first Formal Gathering ‘Joining the Journey’ where they will be introduced to the ways of Jindaola and journey of building knowledge-based relationships.
