The Indigenous and Transcultural Research Centre (ITRC) proudly partners with Indigenous, migrant, refugee and culturally diverse communities to deliver impactful research nationally and internationally. We seek to improve the lives and wellbeing of First Nations and culturally diverse peoples in Australia and around the globe.

Our expanding footprint into new communities brings opportunities for genuine and close partnerships with Indigenous and transcultural communities and engagement in co-research and community capacity exchange.
Our valued members, collaborators and students are committed to social justice, equity and diversity. We are working hard at building genuine and close partnerships with Indigenous and transcultural communities through co-research and community capacity exchange. Our research is embodied within these three major themes:
Building knowledge systems
In partnership with Indigenous, transcultural and international communities, our researchers seek to respectfully engage with and support the retrieval, retention, extension and further creation of First Nations, migrant, refugee, culturally diverse and international knowledge, building recognition and engagement with Indigenous, Southern, Eastern and other knowledge systems.
