The Australian Centre for Indigenous History (ACIH) was launched in 2003, and aims to raise the profile of Indigenous history by way of internationally competitive scholarship and research. It provides both opportunities and support for Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars, as well as community links and relevant historical advice to public policy makers.
Established in 1990, the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR) undertakes research into Indigenous social and economic policy from a national perspective. Maintaining the highest standards of international scholarship, it aims to inform intellectual understanding, widespread public debate, government policy formation, and positive community action.
The Centre for Native Title Anthropology (CNTA) is a unique collaboration between the ANU and the Australian Government which aims to enhance the practice of native title anthropology in Australia. It provides academic and professional support to anthropologists transitioning to a career in native title, and aims to foster stronger links between academia and applied anthropological work.
As a branch of the University’s executive, the First Nations Portfolio works with colleagues across the University to ensure the ANU is a world leader in teaching and research of First Nations issues. It also works to ensure the University makes a leading contribution to national policy in the relationship between Indigenous Australians and the nation.
The Tjabal Centre provides a meeting place and support base for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at the ANU. It is committed to improving educational outcomes for Indigenous students, enabling them to achieve study and career goals which positively impact both themselves and their communities. It provides academic support and advice, personalised tuition, access to ANU services, study spaces, outreach programs to prospective students, as well as pastoral and personal care.
