Yaama, G’day, Hello
UNE4ME is an initiative started in early 2012 aimed at increasing post schooling tertiary study within the local Aboriginal community. It will also look at increasing the numbers of Aboriginal peoples employed in the UNE workforce.
The first phase will be a UNE4ME taste day aimed at year 4-6 school children, bringing them in and introducing them to what university campus life is like. It will also introduce parents and carers of the students to a what’s it like to work at UNE? information session. This day will include guest speakers and role models and will be facilitated by the Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Employment Officer.
Further development of the UNE4ME initiative will be rolled out soon aimed at broadening Aboriginal community engagement at all levels of UNE and spreading the message of inclusivity that is UNE4ME.

I wish to pay my respects to the Custodians of the lands we are on and pay my respects to our elders both past and present. I also acknowledge our children, for just as our elders have lit the way for us in the past, our children will hold the light when we are gone.
