Two hands coming together- depicting Respect, Partnership, Justice

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. By working together with Indigenous and transcultural communities, we seek to improve the lives and wellbeing of First Nations and culturally diverse peoples in Australia and around the globe.
