National Sorry Day 2022

23 May 2022

USC is committed to raising awareness and providing education to staff and students on past government policies which continue to impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

'National Sorry Day is a day to remember and commemorate the mistreatment of the country’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, as part of an ongoing process of reconciliation between the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the settler population.’ Reconciliation Australia.

On Thursday 26 May for National Sorry Day, we can all remember the strength of the Stolen Generations survivors and think about how we can play a part of the healing process for our people and nation.

Bringing them home

The Bringing them Home report was the result of National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from their Families.

You can watch the Bringing them home documentary on YouTube if you want to better understand and reflect on one of the most difficult chapters of our national history.

We know that discussions about the mistreatment of the country’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can be distressing for members of our university and wider community. If you would like to speak to somebody for support, you can access free, confidential counselling through Student Wellbeing.
