is a collaboration between the 9 Victorian Universities and VAEAI, which aims at improving uptake and success of Indigenous students in tertiary education. We’re currently working on a few different projects to help achieve this – one of which is the Indigenous TIS Sessions.
We will be running Indigenous TIS Sessions in the coming weeks and were hoping that you might make your communities aware of our event. I am attaching a copy of the flyer, as well as a FAQ sheet on Toorong Marnong and I-TIS for your reference. Please distribute to your colleagues and networks as you see fit - we want to make sure that everyone who wants to learn about Uni has the opportunity to do so!
Please register to ensure adequate catering. Tickets can be booked online - see links on our events page.
Further to this, Toorong Marnong is developing several projects to help educate, facilitate and celebrate Indigenous uptake in Tertiary Education. If you would like to be involved, or hear more about what we're planning, please refer to the website, or contact us any time.
