Bond University acknowledges the Kombumerri people of the Yugambeh language, upon whose ancestral lands our University now stands.
Nyombil Indigenous Support Centre
The Nyombil Centre provides academic and cultural support assisting Indigenous students with the unique challenges, in particular related to cultural differences, they may face in moving from remote communities and undertaking the new challenge of University study. Academically the centre assists students with their transition into the higher education environment, understanding University policy and supporting their progression. Culturally the centre promotes engagement by assisting students and the University to connect with the local Indigenous community.
The Centre, which is equipped with computers, a printer, free tea and coffee facilities and lounges, creates a sense of community and belonging for our students. By creating an environment where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students are able to study, connect and grow both academically and personally, our vision really is to see their ambition come to life.
