The Indigenous and Transcultural Research Centre (ITRC) partners with Indigenous, migrant, refugee and culturally diverse communities to deliver impactful research nationally and internationally. Our goal is to bring opportunities for genuine and close partnerships with Indigenous and transcultural communities and engagement in co-research and community capacity exchange. Our community of transdisciplinary researchers are passionate about diversity and committed to social justice, equity and inclusion.
