This chapter addresses the role and participation of Australian Indigenous support staff at the University of Tasmania and more broadly in Australian universities. The inclusion and support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, their professional advancement, and career opportunities, along with their contribution to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous student outcomes, are discussed. The importance of strong Indigenous leadership is affirmed; as well as Aboriginal Employment Strategies to drive change, enhance outcomes for Indigenous Australians and break the cycle of disadvantage, by developing culturally inclusive courses and learning environments.
