The University of New England acknowledges that we are on country of the Anaiwan people. UNE respects and acknowledges that its people, programs and facilities are built on land, and surrounded by a sense of belonging, both ancient and contemporary, of the world's oldest living culture. We share the
caring of this country with the Gumbaynggirr, Kamilaroi, and Dhunghutti nations. I would like to pay respect to the Elders, past and present, of these nations, and as a descendant of the Anaiwan people, I welcome you to this country.
