SAE acknowledges the Bunurong people of the South-Eastern Kulin Nation, the Traditional Custodians of the land on which the Melbourne campus stands. We respect the continuing Cultures of First Nations peoples and recognise their connections to lands, seas, waterways, sky and Community.

SAE supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart, and its compelling call for Voice, Treaty and Truth-Telling. We are committed to advancing Reconciliation and ensuring that everyone in our Australian community has access to information about the significance of constitutional recognition for First Peoples, what a Voice to Parliament is and why a referendum is needed to change the Australian Constitution.
