Over the last 8 years Muru Marri has contributed to the global understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health which we see as socio-economic development that protects and enhances the environment and social justice. Through world-class innovative research, interdisciplinary teaching in Indigenous and environmental studies, advocacy and community engagement  we are responding to the challenges of the 21st century for Indigenous community and our environment.

Muru Marri delivers innovative, interdisciplinary, flexible and practical programs that combine a solid foundation in Indigenous and Environmental health with choice from a wide range of cross faculty electives. Our students develop comprehensive knowledge and skills designed to enhance their careers and enable them to play a meaningful role in a sustainable future. Postgraduate programs by coursework or research are available on campus and online.

The Unit works within the University, in the community; with professionals, service providers and with policy makers; striving to honour Aboriginal principles and values and fosters achievement and growth.
