Murrup Barak welcomes all commencing Indigenous Students
Murrup Barak, Melbourne Institute for Indigenous Development takes its name from the Woiwurrung language. ‘Murrup Barak’ means the Spirit of Barak. The name was chosen to honour the memory of the visionary Aboriginal leader William Barak. The name reflects our respect for Indigenous cultures and knowledge and our vision for an Institute that makes an enduring contribution to Indigenous Australia through the transformative impact of education and employment in the context of Australia’s leading University in teaching, learning, research and employability.
Welcome to MU Sport
We're committed to providing a dynamic student experience with a vast range of competitive, recreational and instructional clubs, sports programs and extensive fitness services. Join an inclusive and welcoming environment with programs designed to support all members of the University community, from our Elite Athlete Program, through to our diversity and inclusion programs and various inter-varsity competitions.
Join our sustainability programs
At Melbourne, we're proud to be a global leader in sustainability. You'll have the opportunity for students to act on sustainability issues, through our resources, volunteering and training, and staff-student collaboration. Think beekeeping for our beehives on campus. As a university, we have a special role to play in confronting the challenges of climate change and environmental stewardship. We are on track to reaching zero-net carbon emissions from electricity by 2021 and we were the first university to be certified with a six-star Green Star Communities rating.
How to be a good LGBTIQA+ ally
So, you want to be a good ally? That’s great! It’s important that LGBTIQA+ communities and their allies work together to create an inclusive society. Yes, it’s disappointing that people of diverse genders, sexes and sexualities still experience a range of discriminations that can have negative impacts on their health and wellbeing, but becoming an ally affirms our commitment to kindness and inclusion for everyone.
