Statement: Voice to Parliament

Statement: Voice to Parliament

This National Reconciliation Week RMIT affirms its commitment to First Nations People and encourages everyone in the University community to reflect and engage with the important conversations taking place.

"RMIT encourages our community to be well informed on the Voice to Parliament to fully participate in the democratic process. 

We understand there are differing opinions and encourage the RMIT community to engage in the debate with respect.

Our hope is that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have a greater influence in political decision making regarding their social, spiritual and economic wellbeing."

Professor Gary Thomas, Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Education, Research and Engagement
