In 2017, following an extensive process of consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, the Uluru Statement from the Heart called for “the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution”.
With an historic referendum to enact this call planned for 2023, The Australian National University Council unreservedly supports enshrining an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice in the Constitution, recognising its alignment with the University’s national mission.
