General outlook

Government organisations, including Universities, are the primary service providers and employers of Indigenous Australians. Consequently, they have the greatest potential to 'close the gap'.

In the last few years, academic institutions have heeded the call for integration of cultural competency by offering programs/courses that promote Indigenous knowledge and skills, and the enhancement of positive attitudes towards Indigenous culture.

More information on the University scenario can be obtained from The 2012 Universities Australia website.
